Oak - Reception and Key Stage 1

Term 5 and 6 Project - Coastline


In the Coastline project, your child will use maps to learn about the location of the world’s seas and oceans and keys to learn about map symbols. They will also find out about the directions on a compass. They will learn about the human and physical features of a coastline, including the effects of erosion and how to stay safe when visiting the coast. They will have the opportunity to learn about the work of the RNLI, what happened to the SS Rohilla and about the coastal town of Whitby, including how Captain Cook is linked to the town. They will research the tourism industry and consider what features make a place a successful tourist destination.

Our value this term is 'Justice'. We have read an acrostic poem describing the meaning of Justice and have chosen our favourite line as our goal for this term.

This term, our Big Question is 'Why does Easter matter to Christians?". The children became experts in the story of the Holy Week and Palm Sunday last term and are ready to apply their knowledge to Easter. 

This week we have been exploring why we celebrate Easter with Easter eggs and hot cross buns and exploring the symbolism behind these. We have learnt about traditional Ukrainian Pysanky eggs and decorated our own.

We have discussed the creation story from Genesis 1 and how Christians believe that God created the world in seven days. We created art to reflect this.

Prayer Space

Prayer space enables our children, of all faiths and none, to explore big life questions, spirituality and faith in a safe, creative and interactive way. 

Prayer space gives them an opportunity to develop skills of personal reflection and to explore prayer in an open, inclusive and safe environment. 

The allows our children to make their own meaning and to draw their own conclusions.

We have a collection of activities the children can complete daily, or they may choose to sit and reflect in a calm and thoughtful way.
