This half term our topic is 'Champions of Chocolate!'
In our final half term of the school year we will be immersing ourselves in the story of 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory' by Roald Dahl. We will be using the Talk for Writing approach to learn the story and then write lots of descriptions, recounts, mini scenes, poetry and character comparisons before innovating and inventing our own chocolate factory stories. We will also be writing newspaper reports, persuasive letters and sets of instructions.
In Science we will be learning about plants, their structure and the factors needed for plant growth. We will be carrying out our own experiments and investigating what happens when factors for plant growth are removed or accelerated. We will also be working with Class 3 on some very exciting BLP projects involving the states of matter and materials.
In History and Geography we will be exploring everything Aztec! We will be finding out all about the Aztec empire as well as locating and investigating the countries where the Aztecs were from.
In PSHE we will explore what Fair Trade means and what impact this initiative has on farmers and people around the world.
In R.E we will be exploring 'Incarnation' and exploring the Holy Trinity, as well as adult and infant baptism. We will also be reflecting on Christian beliefs and thoughts about God. We will also look at this half term's value of forgiveness and the Bible story of Jonah and the Big Whale.
