Key Stage 1 The World Around Us Winterbourne and Bristol Term 1 and 2 Literacy We will be linking our literacy with our topic work when we write our stories with a familiar setting, thinking about our local environment and the school. We will also be writing instructions for our bridges that we make and also creating information books about Bristol. We will link Fairy tales to our work on houses and will also be thinking about poetry linked to the stars. Numeracy We will be collecting data about traffic and organising it in tables and graphs. In addition to this we will be developing our calculation skills, problems solving skills and thinking about shape space and measure. Art and DT We will be painting pictures of the local landmarks and landscapes after our walk around Winterbourne. We will design and create models of the suspension bridge after looking closely at pictures. We will look at the work of Banksy and develop our own Brick wall using repeated printing patterns and then create our own graffiti tags. Geography We will be looking carefully at our local area and going on a walk around Winterbourne. From this we will look at maps and think about how they are made and then create our own maps of Winterbourne. We will use and follow maps, completing a treasure hunt around the school and complete a traffic survey in our local area. We will link this with data handling work in maths and draw conclusions from what we have found. PSHE and RE Our PSHE will be linked to New Beginnings and we will be thinking about ourselves, our feelings and how we can solve problems. In Term 2 we will move on to thinking more closely about Getting on and Falling out, focusing on friendship, working together and it will be Anti- Bullying week, so we will be doing some work on this. In RE we are learning about Stories and Sacred Writings, and also looking at the festivals of Harvest and Christmas. Science Our science this term is all linked to Health and Growth – we will be thinking about balanced diets, keeping healthy and medicines. We will then move on to thinking about plants and animals in our local environment, looking at and recognising different plants and animals and thinking about why animals live in certain environments. PE and Dance In our dance sessions we will develop our movement skills and then think about dancing linked to transport. We will be focusing our games sessions on throwing, catching and kicking this term. French This term we will be focusing on greetings and general introductions. ICT We will be using ICT lots during our topic work for research and presentations. We will be creating photo stories linked with our stories with familiar settings. We will also be communicating ideas using texts and images and using ICT to handle information. History We will be thinking about our homes and how they have change over the past 100 years. We will look at how Brunel influenced Bristol through his engineering work and more about Brunel himself. Music In Music we will be exploring duration and linking this to firework music.

Science We will identify native tree species. We will explore the different habits in Winterbourne and the species within them. Geography We will develop our map reading skills. We will create our own maps of Winterbourne. We will develop an understanding of the geography, topography and human geography of our local area. We will study Winterbourne as a settlement and contrast it to other on a local, national and global scale. History We will be researching about Winterbourne throughout history.

Art and Design – We will be making 3D art sculptures using natural disaster style debris. PE – We will be learning to construct a volcano dance.
