Curiculum Overview

As environmentalists

Year 1 will increase their knowledge of the world and experience different climates. They will build on their observation and practical skills by learning how to use a compass, read maps, and gather the correct equipment for specific activities. Tying in with their classroom learning of becoming adventures, Year 1 will embark on weekly challenges that will require them to collaborate effectively on ‘dangerous’ terrain, develop their resilience and resourcefulness in a faraway land, and build their thinking skills when faced with ‘wild’ animals on a safari. All learners will enhance their creativity to explore, adapt and verbalise how they will manage each scenario and what skills they will need to use. The second half term will see them revisit the same places but with fresh challenges to help them develop reflective skills such as thinkering and self-evaluation. As the summer term draws to a close they will be welcomed back from their adventures with a homecoming party where they will individually share times of adversity, courage and creativity.
