Whole School Annual Curriculum Topic Plan

The Summer term at Beech Green sees the launch of our first ever whole school topic, Into The Woods. 

Each year group will be posing a Key Question and, over the course of the term, gathering information and formulating opinions to enable them to answer their question.  We intend to make the learning as realistic and meaningful as possible for the children, making links to the real world and allowing them to explore and find out new things for themselves.  Below are the plans we have made for the term: these will develop and evolve as we explore  the children’s interests and experiences. 

Some year groups will be working towards a legacy project: something lasting which could benefit the children, the school or the wider community.
