Values & Virtues: Attentive and Discerning
RE: This half term we will be completing our Lent unit and learning about Holy Week before we break up for Easter
Our Topic this half term....
Following on from the success and impact of our September unit of work for Here We Are: Notes for Living on Planet Earth by Oliver Jeffers, we are going to return to another Jeffer's text; What We'll Build: Plans for our Together Future. We will be exploring the key themes of building to bring our school community together after the recent Lockdown.
We will be using Oliver Jeffer's gorgeous picture book, 'Here We Are' to kick-start the new school year and help the children get back into school life. Their well-being is our number one priority as we all get used to new routines. We can't wait to get back on the learning wagon too and this book offers lots of opportunities across a range of subjects.
"Our world can be a bewildering place. Your head will be filled with questions, so let's explore what makes our planet and how we live on it. From land and sky, to people and time, these notes can be your guide."
Gods and Mortals
Let's discover a fantastical world of mythical creatures and heroes!
We will learn about Apollo and other Gods who reign from Mount Olympus. We'll explore the land of Greece, where the sun scorches the wings of Icarus. In PE, we'll practise synchronised battle movements just like the Ancient Greeks. Using historical source materials, we'll research daily life in Ancient Greece. We'll write diaries of Daedalus and Icarus and learn about epic battles. We'll read Theseus and the Minotaur and create amazing labyrinths to help us tell the story.
