Our topic this term is Horror. We will be exploring the genre of suspense and writing our very own spooky story based on the book Night of the Gargoyles by Eve Bunting. To bring this to life, we will be visiting Lincoln Cathedral ( 09/10/18). In Science we are looking at the “gory “ parts of our body eg –the digestive system and intestine. The use of Virtual Reality will enhance the children’s first- hand experiences. Through the DARE project the children will investigate drug awareness and the effects these have on the body. Where possible, all other curriculum areas will be linked to the topic.
The children will be expected to continue to read at home and complete their reading task homework; participate in Mathletics and to continue to learn their times tables & spellings thoroughly. Homework may appear different this year as the school is currently reviewing this. Any other homework tasks will be sent out on a Friday with a set deadline whether this be a weekly, fortnight or half termly task. (The usual deadline for weekly tasks is the following Wednesday.)
