Autumn Curriculum Vehicle

Once Upon A Story


Our vehicle for learning this term is all about moving books.

Opening a book is exciting and they are even more exciting when the pop up, have sliding characters or interacting pages. We will be creating our own moving picture books which will be displayed in Stafford library. We will be holding an open morning for parents to come and read our wonderful moving books! 


RE: We will be reading and learning about the Creation story and looking at God's wonderful world.


Science: We’ll look at materials and their properties in our Science lessons


History: We will become historians and look at the history of toys throughout the years. We’ll invite our relatives to share pictures of their favourite picture books and we will compare the differences with ours.


Geography: We’ll look at our local area and see where our library is. We will be looking at creating maps for parents to use and follow


Art/DT: We will design and make our very own moving story book. We'll look at illustrators and authors who have published moving story books.   


Music: We will be listening to and identifying Hip Hop music and creating our own raps to perform.


PE: Mr Daniel will take our PE lesson.
