This half-term, we will be looking at the well-being of our children and will use a 'recovery curriculum' to help our children settle back in to school life as quickly and as easy as possible. Whilst we will constantly move forward with our Year 5/6 Curriculum, we will be revisiting and refreshing skills from the previous years. Here are our topics for this half-term.
In English, we will be reading The Nowhere Emporium by Ross Mackenzie for our English Bridging Unit (with other supporting texts) and will be reading Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone as our whole class read.
Character descriptions of Vindictus Sharpe - a character in The Nowhere Emporium.
Digital Art inspired by Harry Potter - and Vincent Van Gogh's Starry night.
We will also be reading this novel as a class which links to our History topic.
This half term, we will be studying Anglo-Saxons in History. We will be linking this to our DT project and use it as a stimulus for our English unit of legends. Here are some the texts we will be using.
We are loving Viking Boy by Tony Bradman as our whole class read. We can't read it fast enough! We are busy creating some art and writing to send to him about the novel. The children have become empathic towards the heroic protagonist, Gunnar and have equally enjoyed finding out more about the traitor and murderer, Skuli.
The children produced some amazing work from these novels. Their final piece of writing was writing a letter to the author of Viking Boy, Tony Bradman. They thoroughly enjoyed reading this novel as a whole class read and the children cheered when we had finished it!
