Seedlings class are caring, kind and curious learners who always go above and beyond and work hard to achieve amazing things! Our classroom is calm and curious and we love to take our learning outside. In our class we are taught all subjects and throughout the year learn the skills and knowledge to become: mathematicians, artists, readers, writers, scientists, musicians, geographers and historians!
The class is taught by Miss Barnes and supported by Mrs Almey.
Below you can find an overview of our learning for the whole year and also more detail for each term and the sequence which we follow to help build our knowledge in each subject.
We use our Knowledge Organisers which are specific to our learning topic and help us identify key information, that we need to know and remember.
In the first half term of the Autumn term, most of our learning is driven by science and the theme, ‘The Big Build’ – learning about which materials the most suitable to build a strong house. We also celebrate every child’s uniqueness and learn about what makes us so special.
In the second half of the Autumn term, our main curriculum driver is History and we will be exploring how toys have changed overtime and how different our toys are in comparison to the toys our Grandparents played with. We will look at real artefacts and learn how to write and read questions for a special visitor!
In the first half of Spring term, our learning is driven by Science and we learn all about animals, including humans. We learn how to identify and sort animals into the correct group and go on an exciting school trip to see real animals! We also learn body parts and how important our five senses are to survive!
In the second half of Spring term, most of our learning is driven by Science and the theme, ‘The Potting Shed.’ This is really exciting because we take our learning outside and learn about planting! We learn how to plant seeds, name flowers and wild plants, pot and grow our own peas and make a diary.
In the first half of Summer term, most of our learning is driven by Geography and the theme, ‘World Traveller.' We learn about the seven continents and name the five oceans. We've already learnt about where we live in the world so exploring other places and comparing hot and cold places, is a great opportunity to see what happens in the world around us. We also make our own 3D oceans and learn about sea creatures which live in one of the oceans we've learnt about before sailing them on our map around each continent!
In the second half of Summer term, most of our learning is driven by History and the theme, ‘To the Rescue.’ This is such an exciting topic as we focus on the history of the RNLI, lifeboat and sea safety and learn about Cornish inventor, Henry Trengrouse. We have a special visit from the RNLI and are visiting The Maritime Museum to complete workshops about sea safety.
