Autumn Term Planning 2021-2022
As readers we will be reading a range of non-fiction books about Shackleton’s expedition to write a letter to inform people of our trip. Also, as writers we will be learning about the expedition to the Arctic by Matthew Henson and we’ll be writing diaries as if we were him. We will be writing a longer narrative piece based around the Anglo-Saxon story of Beowulf including setting and character descriptions.
As historians we are exploring how the Anglo-Saxons invaded and settled in Britain and the impact their way of life had on England.
In computing, we will further our understanding of how to stay safe online through an understanding of our digital footprint and recognising the influence of screen time on our health. We will build on our knowledge of coding.
As artists, we will be using our photography skills, inspired by Frank Hurley to experiment with lighting composition. We will then use these skills to display our work in an exhibition to explore how site and situation can change the meaning of the work on display.
As designers, we will design and make a torch incorporating electrical components.
As scientists we will be exploring how different sounds are made and testing different electrical circuits.
