Current Topic (Spring 2)
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!
Previous topic (Spring 1)
Arachnids, insects, molluscs and myriapods. Minibeasts come in all shapes and sizes! This half term, we’ll handle a range of minibeasts and small creatures. Detailed research online, as well as a creepy (crawly!) visit to London Zoo to handle some invertebrates will help us to understand how minibeasts move, what they eat and where they live. Using what we’ve learned, we’ll write an interesting minibeast report. In science, we’ll learn how to categorise minibeasts. We’ll make detailed drawings of our minibeasts, present data about them and make maps to show the route of our minibeast hunt. Using wood, stones, garden canes and other natural materials, we’ll create ‘minibeast hotels’ and write adverts to attract minibeasts to stay in them.
Topics covered this term: Place Value, Addition and Subtraction, Multiplication and Division.
