How can famous Olympians inspire us?
we will create poetry, adverts, diary entries, non-chronological reports and questionnaires inspired by The Olympics and famous athletes. We will be working on a film unit about Usain Bolt, which will provide opportunities to create a biography and a research project.
For whole class reading sessions, we will be reading The Story of The Olympics by Minna Lacey and Bill’s New Frock by Anne Fine. We will also explore a range of Greek myths and legends.
xplore and reflect on our school value of Patience. The question we will be exploring is: How and why do people in Cornwall mark significant events in community life?

In Geography, we will explore the equator, the northern and southern hemisphere, the North and the South Pole, latitude and longitude, the Arctic and Antarctic Circle and the Tropics, the Prime Meridian and we will learn about local time.
In Art, we will explore impressionism and be inspired by Claude Monet. We will also create royal portraits and Olympic themed collages. In DT, we will be focusing on Cooking and Nutrition. We will prepare and cook some savoury dishes from chosen places in the world.
In PSHE, we will explore health and wellbeing, the importance of valuing differences and rules, rights and responsibilities. We will be working through these units on the SCARF PSHE programme.
