This term we are focusing on Harry Potter. We have been fascinated so far by reading Harry Potter and the Cursed Child in Guided Reading sessions.
We will be learning about Harry Potter through many aspects of the curriculum. During ICT we will be planning and recording our own Harry Potter trailers. We will also be looking at how to keep safe online and how to use the Internet in an appropriate manner. In Geography we will learning about Natural Disasters in the World of Witchcraft and Wizardry. History will take a look back at crime and punishment through the ages. In Science we will be focusing on identifying and classifying animals and their life cycles - we have already created our own Mittonwarts creatures too! We also have the fantastic opportunity to visit The Harry Potter Studios in London in December and we can not wait.
This term we are focusing on Tribe.
We will be learning about Tribes around the world. During Science lessons, we will be exploring space and also, forces and motion. History and Geography will be linked to tribe and we will be learning about how tribal life has changed over the years. We will also be listening to tribal music and will compose our own pieces too. In January, we will be attending the Young Voices concert to sing in a choir of thousands of children - how exciting?
Our topic this term is Revoltingly Royal. We will be mainly focusing on the Medieval period but will also explore some Shakespeare and the royal family throughout history.
We can't wait to visit the Medieval Festival in Tewkesbury mid July - it's going to be such a fun adventure to explore Medieval life and gain a true understanding of how people in this time period lived.
