Spring Term welcome from Miss Sweetman

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and are ready for working hard this term.

This term our topic questions is ‘What makes a structure mega?’. Where will be exploring mega structures and the features that make them mega.

We will be going on a trip to Lincoln Castle to look at why this is a mega structure. We will be looking at the History of the castles, the features of the castle and who lived in the Castle. We will then be leaning about how William the Conqueror became famous and looking at his life. We will then be writing a report on William the Conquerors life.

As a class we will also be looking at Castles within fairytales. We will be exposed to a different range of fairytales and creating a Rubric (checklist) of what makes a good fairytale. Further to this we will be writing our own fairytales.

This term we are also having a big focus on poetry, the children will be exposed to a different range of poetry and will be encouraged to learn their own poems as well as write them. The children are welcomed and encouraged to bring their favourite poem from to share with the rest of the class.
