New Curriculum

At The Ferns Primary Academy, our whole school curriculum branches from our use of quality texts and is designed to inspire and engage our children. The book, studied by each year group during each term, is the overarching theme for the topics in each subject area. All of our units of work are fully referenced to the 2014 Primary National Curriculum Framework and have a title that is in the form of a question in order to promote enquiry based learning.

What we do...

Transition Text
Tyrannosaurus Drip

We have been reading 'Tyrannosaurus Drip' by Julia Donaldson, one of our favourite authors. In the story, a Duckbill dinosaur grows up with a family of Tyrannosauruses and although he tries to be like them, he realises he is quite different. Eventually, he learns that it is ok to be different and finds others like him.We have discussed that we are all different, we may enjoy different hobbies and interests, we all look different and might prefer to eat and drink different things but we can all get along and still be friends.We have done some writing about how the dinosaur felt at different parts of the story and discussed the different emotions.
