Current Topic (Spring 2)
Come on, let’s grow! This half term, we’ll visit an allotment to see what’s growing and spot the greenhouses and frames that help the plants to grow. Our visit will inspire us to write a report about the allotment and investigate types of compost and biodegradable materials used. We’ll use food from the allotment to make delicious dishes, and plant our own fruits and vegetables. Our art skills will improve as we make detailed observational drawings, using botanical images for inspiration. We’ll write a set of instructions explaining how to plant a tree and learn how to care for plants. The classic children’s book The Secret Garden will inspire us to write our own short stories. We’ll explore germination, learn more about the parts of the plant and find out how they reproduce. Maps will help us to identify the best place for an allotment and where different foods come from.
Previous topic (Spring 1)
Peasants, Princes and Pestilence
Lock your doors and pull up the drawbridge: the dreaded ‘Great Pestilence’ is here. At the start of this half term, we’ll meet a strange character and use a range of source materials to research the symptoms of the Black Death. Our geography skills will help us understand how the black death came to Britain and why it spread so quickly. We’ll find out about disgusting and dangerous plague ‘cures’. Our personal plague journals will record the horror of the black death and we’ll write poetry inspired by Geoffrey Chaucer. We’ll learn about the ‘dance of death’ and perform dances inspired by Saint-Saen’s Danse Macabre. We’ll learn about different social classes, understand the reasons for the Peasants’ Revolt and make our speeches to the King himself to plead for the end of the Feudal system!
