We will work hard to try to see what we all have in common (through discussion and play)so that we can work well together.

This half term also includes being able to communicate respectfully in E-Safety lessons.


History / Geography



Super heroes- (villains)

Beech will look at the qualities of real life heroes who have a positive impact on those around them.

We will look at what it means to be a hero and will focus on certain real heroes in everyday life-such as soldiers, police, fire service and doctors/nurses.

Also- creation of our own super-heroes based on what we would like to be able to do.

PE will be delivered by a sports coach and we focus on how we travel, balance, jumps and rolls and keeping ourselves safe on the equipment.



Classification – Evolution

Also, the symbols and how decorations represent parts of the ‘stories’ being celebrated.
