Our class novel is The Explorer by Kather Rundell, a wildly exciting adventure . Rundell's rich, descriptive prose will transport her young readers to a mesmerising world where they can swim with river dolphins, eat a tarantula and discover a ruined city . We will use this as a stimulus to write a resolution and ending for a narrative having explored cause an effect throughout the term.
Our non-fiction writing will be linked to our and enquiry and will be a persuasive text.
This term we are Historians, Scientists and Egineers for our Enquiry 'What is Chocolate?' It will begin with a trip to CADBURYS WORLD to experience chocolate making and the history of chocolate. We are finding out about the history of chocolate from the Mayans, to Christopher Columbus and then the first chocolate bar being created at Frys in Bristol. We will investigae changes in state and reversible and irrersible changes. Finally we will design and make our own cholate bar wrapping and advertising using our historical and scientific knowledge to help us.
The children will do P.E. on Thursday (alternating morning and afternoon). Kit needs to be left at school at all times.
R.E. is taught through a theme day each term. French is a daily 5-minute activity. Each term the year groups will have different focus artists which they will base thier work on.
