Within Lickey Hills Language Base, each curriculum area is adapted to the needs of the current cohort of pupils. This creates a flexible and bespoke curriculum which changes annually. Additionally, many Language Base pupils access mainstream classes for some areas of the curriculum. Please visit the appropriate mainstream Year Group pages for Maths overviews, for other subjects we will be following the Year 2 topics this year, adapted as appropriate to the children's needs and ages and summarised below. 

Reception                    Year 1                    Year 2


We will be kicking off the Summer Term reading 'Wanted: The Perfect Pet' by Fiona Roberton, a humorous and heart-warming story to inspire our English lessons. In Science we are exploring the natural world focussing on the plants and animals found our local environment. We'll also be exploring a significant event in History as we embark on the maiden voyage of the Titanic - surely nothing can go wrong on an unsinkable ship?  The sculptures and frescoes of Michelangelo will be our focus for Art whilst we'll also be learning how to create music through Computing.


All pupils in LB 1 have a communication folder which holds their reading diary, weekly reading books, maths home learning book (Y1 and Y2 only), spelling practice book (Y1 and Y2 only) and a communication book. Please return the communication folder to school each morning.  

Spellings will posted on Monday evening to practice at home before a 'spelling quiz' on the following Monday. Current spellings can be found online on the link to the right. Maths fluency questions are likewise set on Wednesday and due back by the following Monday. We also strongly encourage the children to read at least three times a week at home.


Please make sure you have your PE or Forest School kits in school for our outdoor and sporting activities. Forest School and indoor PE alternate on a Monday when LB1 will join 1MK - please see this calendar to identify whether your child's class is doing PE or Forest School each week. Outdoor PE is on a Thursday afternoon and you may wish your child to have a tracksuit for the day. Please send your child to school in their kit on their PE / Forest School day. More information about Forest School can be found on our curriculum web page. Please make sure all earrings are removed or covered with tape before school on PE days.

                      Monday - Forest School or Indoor PE 

                      Thursday - Outdoor PE 


Miss Morris (NHS Speech and Language Therapist) will be in school on Tuesdays and Thursdays. She will work with individual pupils and lead both small group and whole group sessions. Miss Morris will also work alongside mainstream staff to support pupil integration into their respective mainstream classes and generalise their speech, language and communication skills. Further specific Speech, Language and Communication Needs (SLCN) support will be delivered by Miss McAndrew (Speech, Language and Communication Needs Teaching Assistant) throughout each week, organised by Miss Morris.
