Kempsey Primary School

To learn with respect and belief; to challenge, create and dream!

The Curriculum

Our class topics are at the centre of all that we do. Whether it is reading and writing or art and music; we will always make sure that it links back to our topic.  

2018-2019

We began the year with a whole school topic looking at the rights of the child. We used 2 books as a stimulus for discussion. We designed our own class charters as well as looking at friendship and what makes a good friend.

We then explored some of the pages within the book, We Are All Born Free. We looked at why people have to leave their home and go and live in other countries.  

 

We looked at the pages about work, education and relaxation, and showed the children images of children working in Victorian Britain. They were amazed at the jobs they did and how little money they earned.

Mr Friendly

Mr Friendly 1
The children read about the character Mr Friendly in Carly's story. This gave us the idea to create our own Mr Men stories.
Our new topic is called Detectives. This began with a variety of nature detective activities.

Detective Dog 1
We have read the story of Detective Dog and written letters asking for our books back. 
In maths we used a variety of resources to represent two digit numbers. Here are some of the children in action. 
Our science topic this term (autumn) is materials. Here are some pictures of the children's work so far.

Having been nature detectives, we thought we would look at the artist Andy Goldsworthy, and challenge the children to use natural materials to create some pieces of art. We looked at some examples and noticed his use of circles/curves, and his use of colours, including tints and shades. We challenged the children to go outside; choose a material and create their own art.
