In Term 1 and 2, we are learning about the Vikings, kicking off the year with a Viking Visitor, which we will ask the children to come dressed in Viking costumes. We are linking our English to this by studying the text ‘Beowulf; which will inspire our writing too. At the end, the children will re-enact the Battle of Ethandune, which we will film and edit. We will be writing Myths and legends, plays, and descriptive narratives. Our science learning this term is on Properties and changes of materials
With the introduction of a new National Curriculum, Westbury Leigh CE Primary School has created an engaging, challenging and stimulating curriculum which provides a range of immersive opportunities to learn for all of its children. It is underpinned by our School's vision and has our School values at its core. Children use a wide range of ICT, laptops and devices alongside interactive whiteboards in each classroom. Our exciting topics have entry and exit points to begin and finish the topics being taught together with establishing links within our community.
Connections are made between curriculum areas making the learning more relevant and meaningful for our children.
