Autumn: Once Upon a Time
This term our River of Knowledge theme is 'Once Upon a Time'. We will immerse ourself in both traditional tales and alternative versions to build our knowledge of these texts. We will start with the classic tale Jack and the Beanstalk, before looking at an alternative version of Rapunzel. This will develop our understanding of how classic tales can vary and developing plot.
In our history and geography lessons we will learn about castles, locating those that are in Suffolk on the map and those that are further afield. We will study the structure and layout of different castles and learn about the people that lived within the walls and the jobs that they did. This will link closely to our literacy work and the texts we will be exploring.
