David Attenborough Class

Our Curriculum

Our topic for this term is ‘Tell Me A Tale’!

Our classrooms will be transformed into an enchanted woodland, full of magic and mystery! We will be creating beanstalks, leaves, toadstools, animals, fairies and so much more to make our learning environment attractive and stimulating.


During this topic we will be focusing on the world of fairytales and encouraging the children to develop a love of reading. We will be visiting Storybook Village at Sundown Adventureland to become familiar with lots of different characters; we will be exploring different settings at Boughton Estate woods and getting to experience some owls up close whilst we read about The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark.

We will be developing our map making skills, both fictional and real, linked to stories that we read and our town. We are lucky enough to have been invited to visit the towering roof of the Newland Shopping Centre so that we can experience a birdseye view of Kettering.
