Dear Parents/carers,

Please see the Autumn curriculum overview below. Kindly have a look a the attached documents and discuss with your children what they have covered as they progress through the terms. At times, we may link subjects together for enhanced learning opportunities. Encourage your children to share what they have learnt from the overviews to enable meaningful and engaging conversations about their learning.

We would like to remind you that the curriculum maps are an outline of what we intend to do. We may sometimes adapt some planning or units to meet the needs and interests of your children. You will be updated of this half termly with our half term parent curriculum letters. Due to COVID-19, there is a greater importance in ensuring gaps are closed, and time is given for your children to access and consolidate learning.

Last week, Year 4 had an exciting time exploring the theme of slavery during Black History Month. A visitor came in to teach the pupils about African drumming and slavery as well as how to make African masks out of milk bottles. Our pupils then created and presented their own presentations based on their own research about slavery. The following lesson, pupils role-played as slaves and masters so they could really empathise with what life was like for them. We ended the week by writing a diary entry from the perspective of a slave or master.
