Please see below for Knowledge Organisers 2023-2024 (Cycle A)

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.

Thieves of Ostia by Caroline Lawrence

 

Look at this amazing homework that Class 2 pupils were inspired to create following their visit to Sarehole Mill!

We had a fantastic visit to Sarehole Mill where we learned all about life in prehistoric Britain. We handled animal skins that would have been used for clothing and bedding.  We looked at a range of Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age tools and weapons, practised cave art and worked in teams to build shelters big enough to protect our tribes.

We learned all about the importance of eating a healthy, balanced diet.  We used this knowledge as well as our cutting, chopping. slicing, spreading and grating skills to design, prepare and make healthy pitta bread pizza.  We then wrote a set of instructions about how to make this delicious dish!

We took part in the Rolls-Royce Science Festival at Rosliston Forestry Centre where we learned some amazing facts about submarines including how they are repaired.  We made periscopes and our own model submarines which we tested out in water..

We took part in street dance workshops

A morning with the Emergency Services

Class 2 Visit to Lunt Roman Fort

We really enjoyed handling and learning about Roman weapons and armour.  We learnt some Latin words and found out how the Romans fought and defended. We had a thrilling time taking part in a Roman Battle Drill in the arena!

Religious Education in Class 2

Class 2 have been learning about why Christians choose to follow God.  They have also learnt about how Christians see God as 'three-in-one' - The Trinity.

Computing in Class 2

We used Scratch to practise our Coding skills to create repetition.

Forest School

We collected rocks from our Forest School site then practised techniques for cave painting.

We helped the wildlife in our local area by building habitats for them to take shelter.  We thought about where they like to hide, what they like to eat and how they might protect themselves from predators.

After discussing and describing the Agora - the Ancient Greek market place - we acted out a scene from a busy market place.
