Welcome to the

Red Class Homepage...

Welcome to Red Class! During the Summer Term we take advantage of our beautiful setting and start off with our topic of Plants and Animals.


- Plants and Animals - The Seaside -

Plants and Animals will include lots of work and play surrounding understanding life and how things work. It will then finalise with an educational visit to All Things Wild where the children will get up close to a range of species and even get the chance to hold a lizard and a snake! After this our topic will be The Seaside, this is a fantastic topic to end with as we create many experiences for the children to learn including an outdoor beach and we end this with a pirate party.

Personal, Social and Emotional Development

We are very excited to be introducing the Taking Care Project this half term, this will be done in addition to our PSED sessions whereby the children get the opportunity to explore their feelings.

Communication and Language/Literacy

During Summer Term we explore many non-fiction books 

Physical Development

Continuation of gross motor skills by using construction equipment and gardening tools outdoors.


Children will be introduced to writing addition and subtraction sums formally and understand that some events last more than one day and recognise that different events can take up different numbers of days. Begin to recognise a calendar.

Understanding the World

We will explore the life cycle of a range of plants and animals and compare our own environment to other children who live by the sea. We will also be looking at a range of religions through stories during RE.

Expressive Arts and Design

Children have an objective each week to create something different on our ‘Messy Table’. This will include painting a blossom tree using finger prints and creating a 3D creation of the seaside as a class.

I think Dunnington is great because it small, which means the teachers know you personally. Also, we go on great trips that help us learn about our current topic. - Rhianna (Year 6)
