Our Curriculum

In Apple Tree Class over Term 1 we will be exploring who we are by looking at our big question, 'What is special about me?' In Term 2, we will be looking at different celebrations and how these can be celebrated. Look out for Apple Trees first Nativity of Ridgeway Farm. In the Spring Term we will answer the question, 'Who can we trust to help us?' We will have visits from the local fire service as well as nurses, the police and our local vets. During the second half of the Spring Term, we will be exploring what makes our world wonderful. The children will learn about our planet and all the wonderful things that happen here. In the Summer Term we will be delving into outer space and learning all about space and beyond our planets. Our environment is very important to us. During the last part of the Summer Term, we will be looking how we can make a difference to our environment. 

Our class curriculum overview can be found here.

Each term we will send you our knowledge organisers and parent letter so you can keep up with the learning in the classroom.


Home Learning

It is our expectation that home learning is completed daily.

  • Reading – please ensure you are reading each evening and logging this in the reading diary.

Families please help us by ensuring that all children bring in their reading books everyday as they will be read with in school time by an adult. Your continued support with your child's learning at home is appreciated and will have such a positive impact on your child's continued progress in their learning journey.
