Over the course of this year, Sandpipers class will engage in a variety of different learning experiences through our topics.

Term 1 - 1066

It’s probably the most famous date in English history... we’re travelling back to 1066! These are troubled times and there is danger afoot. A much-loved king is dead and a French Duke has staked a claim for our kingdom. Not to mention all the other wannabe monarchs! Discover a changing England, shaped by shires, protected by castles and ruled by foreign knights. Are you ready for the Norman invasion? Then don your armour and watch your back!

Term 2 - Scrumdiddlyumptious

Tuck in and enjoy a yummy journey of discovery, tasting fantastic fruits, venerable vegetables and tantalizing treats! Work up an appetite with delicious stories about food, have fun with a vegetable orchestra or become a fruity sculptor. And here’s food for thought – if you are what you eat ... what does that make YOU?

Term 3 - Misty Mountain Sierra

Mighty mountains peak above the morning mists, imposing and eternal, rocky outcrops at their feet. Discover how these giants are formed, as a fold or a block, a dome or a plateau. Follow the water cycle’s course from peak to valley and meet the exceptional tribes of the hostile Himalayas. But beware, look out! What’s that by that tree? Its footprints are huge! Have we found the... Yeti!!

Term 4 - Playlist

Ssh...what’s that noise? A bash? A crash? A shake, a rattle or a low,bass hum? Which do you prefer… an acoustic singer or a booming brass band? A solitary voice singing sweetly and quietly or a magnificent choir lifting the roof? Take out your ear plugs as you journey through the valley of sound .

Term 5 - Heroes and Villains

Martin Luther, Joan of Arc, Rosa Parks or Amy Johnson? Someone from your family or the local fire fighters? There are many heroes and heroines, but who do you admire the most?

Term 6 - Flow

From humble beginnings the river flows down the mountain and in to the sea. Pull on your wellies and wade right in… How deep does it go and how fast does it travel? What soil types can you find by the riverside? Which animals make their homes there? Let’s get down to the river bank and find out!
