Knowledge organisers are not a curriculum. The body of knowledge that children gain at the end of a topic will be much deeper and wider but they are a very useful short document giving parents and children the key facts, vocabulary and information about the topic being studied.

In Class 1, we learn in a variety of different ways, whilst having fun.  We know that we can achieve anything and that we have the power to lead change in our school, in the community and in the wider world.

In DT, we have been developing our primary engineering skills!

Primary Engineer Apprentice Rail Project

In partnership with an engineer from Wabtec, we took part in the primary engineer apprentice rail project.

Using the Jinks method of construction we designed and made a wheeled locomotive powered by an electric motor. We explored electrics and pulleys to help move our vehicle and control the speed and direction of our wheeled device. The vehicle was made with a removable top to expose the mechanisms, but all tests were carried out with the body in place.

If you were an engineer, what would you do?


Children looked at the world around them and found engineered solutions to common problems.  In order to do this, children interviewed an engineering professional, identified a problem and designed a solution to it enabling them to be inspired by engineering professionals and ‘find the engineer they could be’ by designing the future of engineering.  They then wrote letters to the engineer explaining their idea and why they should build it!

We have been learning about living things and life cycles.
