River of Knowledge
Our bespoke River of Knowledge Curriculum (ROK) is carefully sequenced so that children know more and remember more by building upon prior learning.
This half term, we will be learning about traditional tales many which include castles. We will be exploring castles and kings and queens during our history lessons. We will be locating UK castles on maps and learning about the characteristics of the 4 countries and capital cities of the United Kingdom and its surrounding seas. We will be observing changes across the 4 seasons and describing weather associated with the seasons. Through our chosen texts, we will be linking our Science to growing, identifying common and wild plants together with learning the basic structures of plants and trees. We will be conducting experiments to see what seeds need to grow, hopefully growing our own cress, indoor peas and winter pansies.
We will also be learning some traditional nursery rhymes.
