Our topic for Term 1 is Alien Landing. We launch our topic with an alien crash site, make rockets and read books that tell us all about space and aliens.
Some of our favourite books include Aliens Love Underpants, Bob Man on The Moon and Whatever Next. We also read some non fiction books and learn about the first moon landing.
Our topic for Term 2 is Festivals of Light! We explore the Hindu festival of Diwali, The Jewish celebration of Hannukah and the Christian celebrations and traditions surrounding Christmas. We look at a range of artefacts used during each of these festivals and their purposes / meanings.
We read the story 'Owl Babies' and look at Light and Dark.
Term 3 - The Three Billy Goats Gruff!
We have a great term retelling the story of The Three Billy Goats Gruff! We put on a fantastic perfomace to our grown ups and the rest of the school. (Kingfishers). We retell the story, innovate it and sing a range of songs. We even carry out a bridge investigation where we explore a range of materials that could be best for a bridge!
Term 4 - Jack and the Beanstalk!
This term is packed full of fun and interesting events! We have so much fun basing our work around the Jack and the Beanstalk story. We grow our own beans and keep a bean diary, carry out a measuring investigation using the giants footprint and even have a trip to Bristol Zoo! The Doves have their turn at putting on a performance to the parents / carers.
Term 5 - Where in the world is Barnaby Bear
During this term we visit each of the four countries that make up the United Kingdom. We then travel off to France and learn some French phrases. In
each country that we visit we learn some facts and some traditions.

Come to Pirate School! Take part in a pirate day and learn about floating and sinking, following maps and programming our bee-bots.
