Half Termly Themes

In this section...

Each year group has one theme per half term, with the exception of Reception who in the first half of Autumn Term have three themes. This reflects transition into school where it is more appropriate to have three shorter themes. If you click on the theme titles below you will see that each theme comprises of objectives taught under each curriculum subject area. Themes have different 'drivers' for example, Off With Her Head is a History driven topic and Stargazers is a Science driven topic. We ensure that there is the appropriate coverage and progression of objectives across key stages/phases and subjects in accordance with the National Curriculum.
