Year One: Major Oak and Sherwood Forest

This half term the children will be continuing their story ‘How to find Gold’ by Vivianne Schwarz. They will take part in a debate about whether Anna and Crocodile should bury the gold or keep the gold. We will be reading the end of the story and then creating fact files about crocodiles. The crocodile in the story is a character who is reluctant, nervous and often scared of new adventures. We will look at what crocodiles are like in the wild and how this compares to the character in our story. In science this half term the children are studying plants. We will look at what plants are, the features of a plant and how they grow. We will also be studying trees and we will compare deciduous and evergreen trees. History this half term is based on Theatre. We will be comparing theatres from the Victorian times and from present day. We will be studying the work by the actor, Ira Aldridge and discussing how he positively impacted the future for black actors in the Victorian times. PE this half term is football and we have already found many talents within the year 1 year group!

Here’s the knowledge organiser for the work we’ll be doing this term:
