Each Year group has a topic focus for each half term – Science and all of the foundation subjects (Geography, History, Art, DT, RE, PSHE) are taught through cross curricular links in the afternoon and English is linked with this topic through a key text. The key text is to be used over a period of weeks. Teacher’s initiate inspiration for topics by starting off with a WOW start and using experiences along the way to build on the children’s knowledge, understanding and enjoyment. Often trips or visitors are planned in linked to the half term topic. Each Topic has a TBQ which underpins all of the learning and links the whole topic together.
Above you can find the topics, key texts and TBQ for each half term in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2.
