Spring 2: To love or not to love
In English, Year 5/6 are exploring two heritage texts, The Highway Man and Romeo and Juliet. We are writing descriptions from different viewpoints and writing a discussion text. In Art, we are are studying the illustrator Charles Keeping and creating our own charcoal drawings in a similar style. We are considering the importance of respect and tolerance in PSHE.

Spring 1: Tomb Raiders
Studying Ancient Egyptians was the driver for this topic and we enjoyed exploring replicas of ancient artefacts. In History, we studied the significance of the Nile to Egyptians , the importance of religion and its links to the social hierarchy and burial practices , and what life was like for Ancient Egyptians. In English, we used a film clip to inspire our own adventure narratives set in ancient Egypt and used our historical knowledge to write an informative script for a Horrible Histories style video. In Art, we created designs based on Ancient Egyptian imagery and use them for block printing.
