This term we will explore ‘What makes Chilton a good place to live?’. This will be a local area study linked to Geography. We will work to know that Chilton is a village and follow simple trails in and around our school grounds. We will be identifying human and physical features within our village.

In writing, we will begin with finding out about the trees in which our classes are named after. We will produce a fact file to share more about our class trees. We will also be writing a narrative based on our class novel ‘Rabbit and Bear’ by Julian Gough and Jim Field. Across the phase, children will have daily phonics lessons.

In Science this term we will be scientists and work our way through the working scientifically cycle. We start by asking questions about what we notice and observe around us before planning and carrying out our own investigations later in the term.
