English: Texts and outcomes


Summer Term 1

“Unity in the Community” is a thematic unit about the area we live in, with a geography focus. We will develop our geographical skills, local knowledge and understanding through learning about our school, the features of its grounds, the surrounding area and how it has changed over time. We will also learn all about the importance of acting responsibly within both the school and the wider community.




 Summer Term 2


“Light Up the World” is a thematic unit based around the sun and other sources of light, with a science focus. Pupils will look at solar power and how to save electricity, as well as learning about sun safety and the importance of protecting both the skin and eyes. They will also learn about how shadows are formed when solid objects block light. Nocturnal animals will also be introduced in this unit.
