FS2 & Year 1

Main Theme: Look at Me! (Art and D&T, Science)

End of Theme Project: To be able to hold a Science exhibition.

Intent: What wider skills do we want the children to have developed by the end of this theme, supporting future learning and life skills?

  • Problem solving
  • Working as part of a team
  • Reasoning
  • Ability to change things when it isn't going to plan
  • Information gathering
  • Making links
  • Confidence
  • Concentration
  • Resilience

Intent: Outline the factual/topical areas that will be covered, enhancing the development of knowledge and cultural capital?

  • Art and Design
    Explore different methods and materials as ideas develop.
    Explore ideas and collect visual information.
    Use thick and thin brushes.
    Mix primary colours to make secondary.
    Create colour wheels.
    Use techniques such as rolling, cutting, moulding and carving.
    Use a combination of materials that are cut, torn and glued.
    Use a wide range of tools to create different textures, lines, tones, colours and shapes.

  • Design and Technology
    Cut materials safely using tools provided.
    Measure and mark out to the nearest centimetre.
    Demonstrate a range of cutting and shaping techniques (such as tearing, cutting, folding and curling).

  • Geography
    Identify seasonal and daily weather patterns in the United Kingdom and the location of hot and cold areas of the world in relation to the Equator and the North and South Poles.
    Ask and answer geographical questions (such as: What is this place like? What or who will I see in this place? What do people do in this place?).

  • History
    Describe historical events.

  • Science
    Identify and name a variety of common animals that are birds, fish, amphibians, reptiles, mammals and invertebrates.
    Identify and name a variety of common animals that are carnivores, herbivores and omnivores.
    Identify name, draw and label the basic parts of the human body and say which part of the body is associated with each sense.
    Investigate and describe the basic needs of animals, including humans, for survival (water, food and air).

Intent: What opportunities will there be to develop literacy and numeracy skills?

  • Describing a setting.
  • Writing a setting description.
  • Ordering the story.
  • Planning a story.
  • Writing a story.
  • Addition and Subtraction
  • Counting on.
  • Number bonds.

Intent: Cross-Curricular links: Which curriculum areas will be covered during this theme, developing cross-curriculum knowledge and skills?

  • Geography
  • Art
  • Design and Technology
  • Science
  • History

Impact: What opportunities will be provided to assess the development of knowledge and skills?

  • Explanation and discussion of their body parts – what each part is for, which sense is it linked to, why do we need it, why do we need food/water.
  • Same for animals – then linking to their habitats/parts of the world.

Impact: What specific areas of knowledge/skills will be developed during this theme, which will be assessed at different times by the teacher and by the pupil?
