Our topic for the Spring Term 2021 is.......
'How does great literature shape our lives?'
This Spring we will immerse our children in some of the very best fiction ever written and our rooms will reflect fabulous books like: The Lion, Witch and the Wardrobe, Harry Potter, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and the Doctor Zeus’ books. We will take our children on a journey through a variety of genre: fantasy, parallel worlds, mystery, science fiction and more! They will examine how truly inspiring books make their way into our lives, both through the big screen and television, theatre and the news. We will look at how historic fiction with age-old themes has been reinvented and renewed for modern audiences, yet are still enjoyed today. We will focus on sustained, quality writing, evolving characters and building up detailed, believable settings.
Children will act as authors, creating quest stories, reading to each other and editing their work after listening to feedback and critiquing. Our science, art, music, ICT and DT will all be linked to our story writing as we will be creating 3D models, animations, mini libraries and sculptures involving exciting starting points like dragons!
Our finale will be the winner of the little library competition being made into a real book store for our site and a presentation of all the animations, dragon sculptures and quest stories in an online gallery for your perusal. We will also produce a catalogue of book reviews, that together with our Little Library, will create a positive legacy to inspire and enthuse our younger protégés.
