Summer 1 - Journeys 

  • Science = plant growth journeys.
  • English = journey through poetry and story writing.
  • Maths = a journey into fractions
  • Topic = journey around the school using map and compass skills and exploring a journey of new skills; sewing.


Learning intentions :

  • I know a root, stem/trunk, leaves and flowers
  • I know the requirements of plants for life and growth (air, light, water, nutrients from soil, and room to grow) and how they vary from plant to plant
  • I know the way in which water is transported within plants
  • I know the part that flowers play in the life cycle of flowering plants, including pollination, seed formation and seed dispersal.


  • I know the process of a Design and Technology project – research, design, make, evaluate


  • I can communicate effectively and share opinions
  • I can identify a position on a map
  • I can use different strategies to overcome challenges
  • I can talk about my own strengths

Learning intentions

  • Identifying human and physical characteristics, key topographical features (including hills, mountains, coasts and rivers)
  • Children should be taught about the work of a range of artists, craft makers and designers …and making links to their own work (Henri Matisse) & (Mandy Barker)
  • Pupils are taught how to improve their mastery of art and design techniques, including drawing, painting and sculpture with a range of materials [for example, pencil, charcoal, paint, clay]
  • I notice that some forces need contact between 2 objects, but magnetic forces can act at a distance
  • Observe how magnets attract or repel each other and attract some materials and not others

Learning intentions

  • Early humans may have used art as a way of helping themselves in their struggle for survival. Paintings of animals on cave walls were common.
  • Palaeolithic period = People were nomadic hunters and they found food by roaming from place to place in different seasons.
  • Mesolithic period = Tools were developed to become smaller and finer. The invention of canoes meant that people were better able to hunt for fish as well as animals.
  • Neolithic period = People began to settle into farming villages instead of moving from place to place. People started to look after animals and grow their own crops. People started to look after animals and grow their own crops.
  • I can understand that pre-history occurred before historical records were kept.
  • I can explain how changes over time made an impact on the way humans survived and developed.
  • I can use primary and secondary sources to find out about the past.
