In History we will explore Kings and Queens from the past. We will order dates from earliest

to latest on simple timelines whilst using common words and phrases learnt

throughout the year. We will then make simple observations about different types of

people and talk about who was important. We will use various pictures to order,

compare and discuss.

We will also learn about British schools from the past and

explore how they have changed over time.


In Science, we will learn about everyday materials and will recognise and distinguish between an object and the material from which it is made. We will identify and name a variety of everyday materials and describe the simple physical properties of each. We will compare and group together a variety of everyday materials on the basis of their simple physical properties and predict and test materials that are waterproof and absorbent.



In Art, we will create paintings of towns and streets from the past. We will create our

own work in the style of an artist and then describe what we think and feel about

our own work and the work of others. We will think about how we can 

improve the work.


In Design Technology we will learn the basic principles of a healthy and varied diet to prepare dishes for a royal banquet. We will gain a good understanding of where food comes from.

and write a series of sentences to retell a specific tale.


In Summer 2 we will be

exploring stories from the same author. We will write a series of

sentences to create their own version of a story in the style of a

studied author. We will also explore and write an acrostic poem

focussing on description.



In Mathematics, we will look at multiplication and division and add equal groups by grouping and sharing and also make different arrays. We will be exploring fractions by making a half and a whole and we will also find a half and quarter of an object, shape and quantity.
