Glastonbury Thorn School


Fire! Fire! Autumn Term 1

Fire! Fire!

By learning about the Great Fire of London, the children will understand more about significant events in history and how they have changed the way we live today. By studying Tudor buildings, the children will learn about the importance of using the appropriate materials for a purpose, including manipulating materials to create a product. They will gain a better understanding of themselves and others, knowing how to stay safe and respect others.

Through the inspiration of The Fire of London, the children will be given opportunities to create  and write about many things. Through collaboration, they will understand the importance of being a team and achieving together.

They will understand that anyone can achieve if they work hard enough and believe in themselves. It is also possible to achieve after something has gone wrong.  

The children will gain a better understanding of what it means to be part of a community. They will improve their collaboration skills and awarness of how they can influence others around them.

GTS Curriculum Maps

Our curriculum maps show what the children are learning in the topic being taught. All subjects that are being taught are mapped out with what the children are going to learn and what they will be able to do by the end of the topic.

You will see that there is a strong Reading and Writing focus and Maths is also represented.

In addition, each curriculum map shows the experiences your child will have as part of their learning, as well as what they are going to create and any WOW moments they are going to experience...exciting!

Please look at these carefully and feel free to help your child understand what they are learning. We obviously do not expect you to teach your child, however if you want to help them understand more, this will aid their learning in class and allow the class teachers to deepen learning even more!

GTS Knowledge Organisers

Our knowledge organisers give children the opportunity to record what they have learnt, in order to aid knowing more and remembering more. Throughout the topic, knowledge organisers are referred to to assist learning and are also revisited at the end of the topic and throughout the year, ensuring that knowledge sticks!
