Spring Term 2020

Our Class-book is 'Sheild Maiden' by Stuart Hill

Shield Maiden (Flashbacks) by [Hill, Stuart]

 

Synopsis

The story of King Alfred's daughter Aetheflaed. The gripping story of King Alfred's daughter Aethelflaed brings the Key Stage 2 history curriculum to life. Perfect for fans of historical adventure. When King Alfred's great hall is destroyed by the Vikings, the king must flee with his family. But his daughter Aethelflaed knows that hiding in the marshes, far away from the battlefield, is the last thing she wants to do; can she fulfill her destiny and become a warrior princess, a shield maiden?

Planning for the term

History focus on the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings

 

Autumn Term 2019

This term we are reading 'Where My Wellies Take me '. Pippa loves going for walks, whether it's sunshine or cold- long, wandering walks where her wellies take her. Follow Pippa into the beautiful countryside as her day unfolds, and the wildlife, animals and people she encounters are complemented by relevant poems from some of our greatest authors, personally chosen by Clare and Michael Morpurgo.

 

 

Planning Map

 

 

Summer Term 2019

This term we are reading "Dear Olly" by Michael Morpurgo. It is a story in three parts, based on the migration of a swallow. We will also be looking at African animals and their habitats and will be visiting Chester Zoo to support this.

We will be  writing persuasive leaflets and a range of information pieces, but also writing a story, using "Dear Olly" as a stimulus.

 

 

Spring Term 2019

This term we are going to be reading a number of books focusing on Greek Myths. The main books we will use are ‘Orchard Greek Myths’, ‘Percy Jackson and the Greek Gods’ and 'Halo'. We will also support our learning by using other texts involving Greek myths and legends.

This term we will mainly focus on fiction writing but will also look at family trees, play scripts and persuasive posters.

 

 

Autumn Term 2018

This term we are reading a book called 'The Amazing Tale of Ali Pasha' by Michael Foreman. The book is centred around the main character of Henry, a 21 year old seaman during WW1. It details his story throughout the war and his unlikely meeting with a tortoise on a battlefield.

This term we will mainly focus on non-fiction writing and learning about the history of WW1. We will also support this learning with other texts during WW1.
