This term, Spring 2, has a topic named 'Groundbreaking Greeks'. This historical topic covers the period of Ancient Greece, including: culture, art, literature, democracy, city states, myths, Greek gods, the Olympics and much more. Alongside the non-fiction, we will also be reading, 'Who Let the Gods Out?' by Maz Evans.
During Spring 1, our topic focus was the Medieval era, specifically the Black Death. Our topic title: Peasants, Princes and Pestilence describes the historical impact of the plague. In English, we read the story 'Children of Winter' by Berlie Doherty.
Our class text is 'Children of Winter' by Berlie Doherty. We will be using this text to examine how language has changed over the years and to better our inference skills regarding life at the time it was set.
The first topic covered this year was 'Stargazers' with a science focus on the Solar System. Within the topic, we read our class text 'Cosmic' by Frank Cottrell Boyce. A highlight being the lauch of our rockets at the end of the term! There are many other interesting fiction, non-fiction and poetry books linked to this topic.
