Welcome to Storey Class
Storey Class long term planning
I wonder … How can we look after our planet?
In our curious curriculum, we are looking at the importance of recycling to look after our planet. We will be learning about how rubbish and litter destroys the planet by looking at animals (both sea and land) and we will begin to understand the concepts of reducing, reusing and recycling. We will also consider the impact of plastic decay and pollution and will be testing out materials/rubbish that decays/composts in our school grounds. The children will also be be going on a litter pick around the school grounds as well as considering ways we could become more eco-friendly at school.
I wonder … What is growth?
In our curious curriculum, we are looking at lifecycles and seasons. We will be looking closely at the lifecycle of chicks and caterpillars and are lucky to have quail eggs in our classroom which we can observe hatch. We also have our own caterpillars to observe turn into butterflies and then we will release them into our EYFS garden. We will also be growing our own sunflowers and beanstalks with our own ‘magic beans’ from the story Jack in the Beanstalk. We will observe the seeds sprouting (germination) and think about the function of the different parts of a plant. We will be considering signs of spring by going for walks and new life, with a focus on the Easter Story in Christianity.
I wonder … What’s in the toy box?
In our curious curriculum, we will be exploring toys from the past. We will learn to compare toys from throughout history by looking at the materials toys are made from, how they move and how they are made. We have our very own toys and games from the past loan box from Hastings Museum that the children will be able to explore. We will also be creating our own paper toys.
I wonder … What can the world teach us?
In our curious curriculum, we will be looking at the world around us. We will be investigating human and physical Geography and looking at animals that live in our world. We will be thinking about ways we can classify animals based on what type of animal they are, what they eat and their different body parts. We are looking forward to our school trip to Mallydams Woods where we will be exploring animal habitats.
I wonder … What makes us special?
In our curious curriculum, we are looking at what makes us special. We will be focusing on transitioning into school and finding out about our likes and dislikes as well as hobbies, interests and talents. We will be exploring our senses this term as well as finding out about influential people from the past. We will then be considering what we would like to achieve and thinking about the skills and attributes we would need for these.
