Elm Summer 1

During the first Summer term we will be learning all about Castles. We will be reading the book The Adventures of Eggbox Dragon by Richard Adams a story of a young girl called Emma who is delighted when her home-made dragon magically comes to life. He is good at roaring, he’s great at breathing fire and best of all he is excellent at finding lost treasure. The children will use the text as a stimulus for writing non-chronological reports.

In Maths, the key skill focus for this term will be to revisit number and place value, addition and subtraction, measurement, fractions, time and shape.

In History, the children will be exploring castles. They will focus on the key skills of:

  • Being taught about changes within living memory.
  • Being taught about significant historical events and/or places in their own locality. (Lancaster Castle)
  • Recognise how their lives are different from those people in the past


In Science we will be exploring Humans and Health and How to Be Healthy.
