Our Curriculum

At Tarporley we follow the BOOKS approach to our curriculum. We want to be/have:




Knowledge and skills                 


Through our curriculum we aim to inspire children with these attributes and always look for moments in our day where we can be BRAVE and OUTWARD-FACING, look for new OPPORTUNITIES, build on our KNOWLEDGE AND SKILLS, and take time to focus on our SPIRTUALITY.



Our Autumn Term

Welcome to our termly update. Here you will find information about the themes and topics your children will be learning over this half term. 

The theme this half term is Let's Go Exploring! We will learn what an explorer is and what they do/did that made them worthy of our attention. Our first text will set the scene and capture our imaginations and enthusiasm and 'exploring' will be the common thread for the whole half term.


Please do not read the books ahead of time as we enjoy discovering them together!

The Owl Who Was Afraid Of The Dark- Jill Tomlinson (both picture book and chapter version); Owl Babies- Martin Waddell; Above and Below- Hanako Clulow

Our focus: understanding a sentence needs a subject and a verb (usually) and the full stop goes at the end of the idea. (This is a long-term y1 objective.) Learning to write a non-chronological report about owls. Any non-fiction reading material you can find to look at the headings, information, diagrams and their labels would support work in school beautifully.


Number:  Addition and subtraction to 10 (inlcuding rapid recall of number bonds of all numbers to 10)


Religious Education:

Judisism - We will be exploring the following 'Big Questions'

How do Jews show faith through practices and celebrations?

Why do Christians celebrate Christmas?

Our nativity will be our focus this half term where we will learn the importance of the Christmas story in the Christian calendar and celebrate the birth of Jesus. 


Living things and their Habitats - Plants, Animals and their Habitats. What is a habitat? What different kinds of habitats are there?

Design and Technology: 

Design and evaluate a bird box. We have asked for help from Mr Gilbody for this and are looking forward to sharing his expertise on birds and D/T with us.

History and Geography:

Exploring the lives of significant individuals. What is an explorer? What did they contribute to history/now? We will learn about Neil Armstrong, Tim Peake, Mae C. Jemison,  Valentina Tereshkova.
