Term 1

Our topic this term 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.




Term 2

Our topic this term 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

 Our topic this term is 'The Three Billy Goats Gruff'.

We used a story map to retell the original story and then changed some of the features to create our own brand new stories! 

Doves Class performed 'The Three Billy Goats Gruff' to their parents/carers, their siblings and the Year 2s. They designed their own invitations, painted props for the play and all learnt lines to say. 


Our first week back was also an exciting one because we had a whole school STEM week (science, technology, engineering and maths). As a class we designed, created and evaluated kites, then did the same with stomp rockets. We also went to the science fair which was led by KS2 children. It was an amazing week and lots of fun!














Term 4

Our topic this term is '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 Kingfishers have their turn at putting on a performance to the parents / carers.


Term 5

Our topic this term is '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 the days of the week in French. In each country that we visit we learn some facts and some traditions and send home Barnaby Bear each night with a lucky Kingfisher or Dove.

  Term 6

Our topic this term is 'Pirates'.

We dress up as pirates and visit The Matthew and go for a tour of the Bristol docks. We learn all about programming by using BeeBots. We create our own treasure maps and learn the compass directions of North, East, South and West.
