Autumn term topics:
The topics for the Autumn term will be ‘We Are Family!’ including ‘Flanimal Kingdom’ and ‘The Voyage of the Titanic.’
We Are Family!
We will be launching this topic by reading a brilliant text called ‘Hey Grandude’ by Paul McCartney. We will be writing postcards and setting descriptions inspired by the adventures that the children go on in the story. If you manage to go anywhere during the summer please buy a postcard and bring it to school when you return in September. We will have a Geography focus looking at the local Geography of Wolverley and Kidderminster and a PSHE focus on celebrating our differences. We will then move the focus to the hilarious text ‘Flanimals’ by Ricky Gervais. We will be designing our own ‘Flanimals’ in textiles and writing instructions for how to look after a ‘Flanimal’ We will also be link in some learning about animals and their habitats in science.
The Voyage of The Titanic
During this topic we will be learning about the history of The Titanic and its fateful voyage. We will be reading the texts ‘Samson’s Titanic Journey’ by Lauren Graham and ‘Story of the Titanic’ by Steve Noon. We will be doing some diary writing, and non-fiction writing linked to these texts. We will be also be creating some artwork inspired by ‘Scenes of the Sea’.
