Class Overview

China Class is made up of. . .

Topic Summary


Our topic this half term is ‘Our Town!’ We will be exploring different places in our school, town and then comparing our town to China. We will be developing our cultural understanding through Cookery, Art and History.

Outdoor learning

As a school and a class, we are committed to delivering learning in different environments; both inside and outside. So far this year this has been fantastic and we want to continue this through the colder months. It would be useful for children to bring coats and wellies. As we want to make sure they’re prepared for the elements.We are also starting our Forest School Sessions at Carlyle Infant School this half term which link in perfectly to our topic.

Enrichment Activities

Where appropriate and relevant we will take trips into our local community to enrich classroom learning.

General Notices

Please send social fund contribution (£6) into school as soon as possible to enable us to begin cooking and provide daily snack. We are aiming to enrich the curriculum through a variety of trips and will give you notice of these in advance.
