To enable groupings to be fluid and flexible, the curriculum is carefully designed to ensure there's a thematic link between projects. For example, nursery's project 'why can't I have chocolate for breakfast?', reception's 'Why are carrots orange?' and Key Stage 1's 'Scrummdiddlyumptious' are all food based projects. Children are sensitively and carefully guided to the appropriate learning opportunties to ensure knowledge is cumulatively sequenced for each child. 

 

Current topic: Do you want to be friends?

Friends are the family you choose! Do you want to be friends? Would you like to play with me? It’s time to find out more about friendship, being kind and working together.
This half term, we’ll take a walk around our school to find out about the adults who work there and their workspaces, taking photos as we go. Back in the classroom, we’ll upload and print our photos to compile a ‘Who’s who?’ display of school staff. Working together, we’ll create friendship scenarios using Jelly Babies at the ‘Jelly Babies playground’, and we’ll create a ‘Class jobs board’, allocating responsibilities amongst ourselves. We’ll talk about friendship, being kind and helpful, loneliness, enemies, and the things we like. What is our most cherished possession? In our literacy lessons we’ll discover new words to describe ourselves, and write sentences to compare and contrast each other. In our mathematics lessons, we’ll share objects out fairly, and compare hand and foot sizes with our friends. Getting creative, we’ll use a gathering drum to tap out rhythms together, and paint our palms to make beautiful patterns to cut out and hang on a class friendship tree.
