Spring term 2

 

We cannot believe we are half way through the academic year already! We will kick start the half term with Book Week where we will have the  opportunity to meet with an author and ask him questions about his career. Following this week, in Year 5, we will be taking an exciting trip to Winchester Science Museum to consolidate our learning on ‘Earth and Space’. Across the curriculum, we have an array of different World War II themed books to study during our Guided Reading sessions. We will be continuing our photography and collage unit, looking at Berenice Abbott as our artist. We will be using photographs of the local area, that we have already taken, to create and inspire our collage work. In Year 6, we will be continuing our work on Shakespeare before moving on to looking at World War II linked  stories including The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas and Once. We will use these stories to inspire our writing in English and continue practising skills that we need in order to ensure we can analyse and enjoy reading properly. We are hoping the weather will start to improve so we can take our learning outside!
