Being the best we can be


Newton Class

In Newton Class, we make sure the children have a rich and engaging learning experience inside and outside the classroom.  Our project follows the National Curriculum guidelines and has been influenced by the children’s interests. For the spring term, our project is about Space, Isaac Newton’s life and things that happened when he was alive.

Our learning environment is set up so that the children are immersed in the excitement of the project for the duration of the term. We are going to start with Newton and progress on to look at the Fire of London and then Space and the planets.

Throughout this project, there are lots of opportunities for the children to engage in cross-curricular learning. We will explore Newton’s discoveries about the law of movement and space.

There will be lots of opportunity to do descriptive writing and poetry as well as factual reports.

Where possible, mathematics will be linked to our project. We aim to plan and teach maths in an engaging and practical manner so that the children are able to progress through the curriculum. This means that the children will have the tools they need to master the Year 1 curriculum statements.  We will be visiting the Science museum in Leicester,  which will be very exciting!
