This half term our topic is 'Tremendous Tudors' and we will be answering the question,
'Why were the Tudors so influential?'
In this second Spring Term, we are looking forward to lots of exciting learning opportunities both indoors and outdoors now that the nicer weather is on its way!
In Literacy, based on the 'Talk for Writing' approach, we will be immersing ourselves in Shakespeare's 'Macbeth'. We will be watching the BBC animation of this ghostly tale and using drama to help us understand the plot, characters and themes of this powerful story. We will write character descriptions, setting descriptions, diary entries, letters and even our own play scripts. We will also be exploring how to write spooky, atmospheric stories and writing our own! In our class reading sessions we will be reading a variety of texts as well as listening to our class novel - My Friend Walter by Michael Morpurgo.
In R.E we will reflect on this half term's value of 'KINDNESS'. We will also ask 'What did Jesus do to save human beings?'
In Science we will be investigating LIGHT and linking this to the theatre - looking at the effects of light angle on the shape and definition of shadows, exploring how humans see colour, using mirrors to create reflections and splitting white light.
In Geography we will focus on the geography of the UK, including its cities and counties, its topography and land use over the years.
In History, we will be exploring all things Tudor - learning all about this fascinating dynasty and its intriguing and sometimes brutal history.
