Our topic this term is based around the book we'll be reading in English - The Adventures of Odysseus. This book is an exhilarating account of one of the world's great adventure stories. It tells the story of Odysseus, as he fights his way back home across unfamiliar seas and the harrowing ordeals and adventures he endures. On his journey, he learns that this is a quest of a lifetime - and even when he does reach his beloved homeland, his work is far from over. This book will inspire the children to write thrilling adventure stories and other text types to captivate their audience.
We will have another visit from the Rainbow Theatre who will take us back in time to Ancient Greece.
In science, the children will be learning about animals, including humans through the Cornerstones Blood Heart topic. They will learn to identify and name the main parts of the human circulatory system, and explain the function of the heart, blood vessels and blood. The children will recognise the impact of exercise, drugs and lifestyle on the way our bodies function.
We will be doing an artist study on the famous work of Wassily Kandinsky, the Russian painter and art theorist. Kandinsky is generally credited as the pioneer of abstract art and the children will explore his style and create their own abstract pieces.
