Autumn term – Hero’s and Villains
Throughout this year, we will be working with Year 6 in our English and Topic lessons. The children have already made an impression start in their new topic ‘Heroes and Villains’. They will be learning about mood, line and colour in art before moving on to learn about, and create, a piece Pop Art based on the work of artist Roy Lichenstein. In English, we will be reading The Prisoner of Azkaban to inspire their writing. They are currently busy learning how to convert a screenplay to narrative. The children will also be entering the exciting world of Quidditch as they learn how to be a sports journalist reporting on the exhilarating game from J K Rowling’s wizarding world.
Further details about Year 5
What a great start to the year! Year 5 have settled in well and are already working hard and showing an amazing work ethic.
Our guided reading book is The Prisoner of Azkaban by J K Rowling. The text will give the class ample opportunities to discuss the themes of friendship, justice and morality. In Science the children will be studying forces. They will have the opportunity to make parachutes, boats and see a paraglider in action! This term in RE we will be examining why the Qur’an is important to Muslims. We are extremely lucky to have a visit from Mrs Choudry talking about her beliefs and her recent pilgrimage to Mecca. After half term we will be RE detectives, asking whether Jesus was the Messiah, looking at evidence in the Bible.
This term, we are very excited to be visiting The Harry Potter Studios, The Trenchard Museum in Halton for a STEM related day and a trip to the theatre. It is going to be fantastic!
