This is an important transitional year for our children as they move from Key Stage 1 to Key Stage 2 and we do all that we can to make it smooth, calm and rewarding for everyone. We like to focus on the positive ideas that the children bring with them, but do expect them to work hard and try their best. We encourage the children to have a go at all that we give them, with support and guidance available every step of the way.

One of our favourite topics is ‘Pirates’ where we investigate what pirates were really like, where they travelled and what they did. We also read and write adventure stories about pirates, make bandanas and treasure maps and dress up as pirates for a Treasure Hunt day were we also have to talk ‘Pirate language’!

Another exciting topic is about Ancient Egypt. We look at the way of life, the importance of the Nile, Gods and Goddesses and archaeological discoveries. In particular we look at the discovery of Tutenkhamun’s tomb. We then visit The World Museum to do a Trail and be archaeologists handling artefacts from 1000’s of years ago!
