Miss Fitzpatrick & Mrs Roberts Class 2018/19
Autumn Term 1
What’s in the Wardrobe?
This half term we are working towards our Fantasy Exhibition
Our class text is ‘The Lion, The witch and The Wardrobe, and we will be writing diaries, instructions, narratives and biographies.
Our science is Materials, where we will be investigating the best insulators for keeping the White Witch cold and hot.
In Geography, we are looking at the physical features of where we live and exploring maps, including Google Maps and Google Earth. We will create maps of Narnia.
We shall be making, tasting and evaluating some tempting Turkish delight as a Design Technology project.
We are looking at art in nature and studying classical artists, such as Gainsborough; comparing these with modern artists such as Andy Goldsworthy. In particular, we will be studying trees and creating our fantasy tree pictures.
We are using Garageband to compose music with a fantasy theme for our exhibition.
This half term’s PE is on Tuesdays (outdoor), playing team-building games, and Fridays (indoor), when we will be hip-hop dancing!
Homework: reading every night, weekly spellings and maths challenges. Please do not worry if your child does not understand the homework – let us know and we can go through it with them. Homework is due in on Mondays unless otherwise stated by the Teacher.
