Our Curriculum

Click on the tabs below to find out more information about each topic. Throughout the year we will also add pictures of memorable experiences and hooks!

During this term children will be learning about the local history of Derby, particularly about the Silk Mill and the Cathedral. They will also be developing an understanding of plants in science and the history of graffiti within art, focusing on the famous works of Banksy and Jean-Michel Basquait.

The Lost Thing

It is a humorous story about a boy who discovers a bizarre-looking creature whilst out collecting bottle-tops at the beach. Having guessed that it is lost, he tries to find out who owns it or where it belongs, but the problem is met with indifference by everyone else, who barely notice it’s presence.

Thing You Need To Know

Home learning is an opportunity to develop and build on skills that children have learnt during lessons at school. It will be sent out on a Friday and will need to be returned by the following Wednesday. There is a lunchtime Home learning club if children struggle to complete it at home. Please don’t hesitate to ask your child’s teacher if they are struggling.

There is also a termly topic home learning grid where children can choose from a variety of activities to complete that are linked to our topic.

Due to the current circumstances children are to come to school in their PE kits on the days that they have PE. This year Excellent Elms will have PE on a Tuesday and Aspiring Acers will have PE on a Friday.

Autumn 1: This term we will be going for a walk into the centre of Derby. Date TBC.

There are many ways in which you can support the learning of your children at home. Below are links to some useful websites.
