Summer 1 & 2

TO BE OR NOT TO BE – Shakespeare


As we are fortunate enough to be involved with the Shakespeare project, our focus for this term will be Shakespeare.  This will include studying Shakespeare himself and writing a biography, along with looking at his plays.  During art sessions, we will create our own masquerade masks. Our main focus for the project will be 'Romeo and Juliet'. We will take part in a performance on Monday 19th June. In science lessons, we will be looking at Light and Shadows and will continue to study Hinduism during  RE.

DEAD OR ALIVE – Summer 2 topic will include studying the parts of a plant and investigating what plants need to grow.
