Summer Term



The children will have the opportunity to plan, write and edit their own explanation text and extended narrative. The children will work from their imagination and will link their texts to other topics there are learning about (for example history, geography etc). The children will be taught skills specific to the genres as they develop their ideas through the writing process. This will then promote the up-levelling of their language, structure and grammatical choices at they create in writing.





This unit is the first time children are introduced to the £·p notation. Children will learn that the decimal point separates the pounds from the pence. They will estimate total costs and will start to add and subtract simple amounts of money. They will go on to multiply and divide amounts of money and solve word problems about money. They will compare and order amounts of money and will be able to use the four operations to solve money-based problems.


Children will apply their knowledge of existing facts when expressing a period of time using a different unit of measurement. Children will also be introduced to the concept of the 24-hour clock, learning to state the time as both a 12- and 24-hour clock time.


This unit develops children’s understanding of certain types of 2D shapes and their properties. Children begin by learning about three types of angles: acute, obtuse and right angles. They will use right angles as a way of recognising when angles are acute or obtuse. Children then learn about different types of triangles and different types of quadrilaterals. Children will then learn about how shapes can be regular or irregular and will develop their understanding of symmetry, both inside and outside of shapes.




Living things and their habitat

They will learn that living things can be grouped in a variety of ways. They will use classification keys, identifying and naming a variety of living things. Children will work collaboratively by grouping plants in several different ways. A range of animals can be found in our local environment, and their children will work practically to identify this. The children will also look at modern science. Identifying that environments change, and this can sometimes pose a danger to living things.


The children will identify early on that sounds are made when vibrations travel through a medium and enter the ear. Sounds get quieter the further the vibrations must travel and can be insulated using different materials. They will work scientifically in investigations, considering what is needed to ensure a fair test, where only one variable is allowed – all others must be kept the same. A fair test can be used to answer scientific questions.




The world of the Tudors

The children will have a range of opportunities to reflect on artefacts, learning that they give us evidence about what happened in the past. The children will reflect on the portraits of Monarch and identify that they portrayed a positive image of themselves. In 1534, Henry VIII declared himself head of the Church of England, sparking the English reformation. We will look closely at Henry’s changed to the English Church and how his divorce of Catherine of Aragon caused him to be excommunicated. In the Tudor period, people were roughly classified into three categories: Peasant, Yeoman and Nobility. We will look at the life of these groups of people. The children work their way through the Tudor period, ending on the influences Queen Elizabeth had on England.

Indoor P.E. - fundamental skills - In this unit, the children will develop and apply their reaction and response and floor work balance through focused skill development sessions, healthy competition, cooperative games and group Personal Best challenges.

Outdoor P.E. - Cricket 


Summer 2: 

Indoor P.E. - fundamental skills - In this unit, the children will develop and apply their ball chasing through focused skill development sessions, healthy competition, cooperative games and group Personal Best challenges.

Outdoor P.E. - Arithmetic



Design and Technology



The children will begin by identifying electricity as a type of energy used to power electrical items. Children will be reflecting on electrical circuits, and what they need to work successfully: a battery, a bulb and a switch. They will reflect on the successes of Thomas Edison and Joseph Swan. They will then identify the purpose of a torch: To create directional light. The children will design a torch fit for the user, considering both design and function.




Exploring Rivers

Children will begin by recapping their knowledge of the water cycle and its four processes.  Children will then build on this buy stating what a river is, their formations and their features. Children will be expected to use atlases effectively to locate rivers across the UK. They will learn about the process of erosion and how it is caused within a river. There will also be opportunities to investigate what transportation and deposition is within a river. Linking to modern concerns, they children will have the opportunity to reflect on the causes and effects of flooding.


Art and Design


       Henry Moore:


  • To know about the famous British sculptor.
  • To use lines, pressure and shading to experiment with tone and form.
  • To draw familiar objects from a range of viewpoints.
  • To use pencils, chalk and watercolours to respond to Henry Moore’s Underground Sketches.
  • To develop my own ideas, experiences, and imagination.
  • To describe art and share my opinions about the art I have created.





Objectives covered in computing lessons:

  • Animation is a process by which still pictures appear to move.
  • An Onion Skin tool can be used to combine still pictures to create a digital animation.
  • Stop motion animation is animation that is captured one frame at time, with physical objects that are moved between frames.




In Spanish, the children will be immersing themselves in the language through creating dialogue in a restaurant role play. The children will be given the opportunity to cook simple dishes that related to the culture of Spain within this Restaurant topic.


The children will then more on the Spanish terminology for the weather and holiday. They will learn the language in isolation, and will then place them into context, communicating together with peers.
