Our long term plans can be accessed below revolve around a big question. A number of lessons build up the knowledge and associated skills to allow a pupil to discuss the enquiry at the end of the unit. Many other linked questions will also be investigated as part of this learning journey. Units often begin with children sharing what they already know and what they would like to find out about. The class pages on the website include an overview of learning for that particular term as a PDF document for further information.
