Welcome to Class 5 and Class 6!

Curriculum Projects

Our Curriculum Project for Spring 1 2020

Scream Machine!

Roll up, roll up! We’re exploring theme parks! This half term, we’ll write poems to capture the excitement of riding a roller coaster and investigate the wonders of centripetal force. After carrying out fair tests to investigate the materials used to make roller coasters, we’ll create prototype rides of our own. Let’s hope we choose the right materials! In our computing work, we’ll upload photographs of rides and examine online theme park maps. Then, we’ll use advanced techniques and commands to search for information on the internet. In English, we’ll write stories, signs and emails about theme parks and investigate forces by making a ride. We’ll design a roller coaster using software such as Scratch and look at online advertising.Follow us down the rabbit hole as we delve into the strange and wonderful world of Lewis Carrol and his book, Alice in Wonderland. We will be immersing ourselves in the language and characters and exploring the poem, Jabberwocky. In our topic sessions we'll meet a very important figure from history who gave similar orders as the Queen of Hearts - King Henry VIII. Online research will help us to write biographies about influential people of the Tudor period, and we'll use source materials to create a Tudor timeline. Tudor portraits will provide us with the inspiration to create royal paintings; we'll learn a courtly dance and compose Tudor music. Our geography skills will help us to compare maps of Tudor London to present day London and plot Anne Boleyn's journey to her execution.
