Colgate Detectives- Through the Door
This term we will become detectives; we are going to learn the different skills that are needed to be a great detective. We will be learning about Colgate in the past and comparing it to present day Colgate. Cedar class will look at our local area, in Geography we will be using maps to investigate the changes in our school and local village. The children will work out why and how the land use has changed. In History, we will be learning about life in Victorian Schools and what it would be like to have lived in Victorian Colgate. The children will use old photos, log books, punishment records, attendance records and diary entries to gather information about the past.
Our topic for our English lessons is ‘through the door’, this will be based upon the texts Journey and Coraline. We will begin by reading Journey and comparing this to Coraline, we will then be writing our own ‘through the door’ stories. The children will also be creating documentaries/documentary scripts, Victorian poetry and instruction writing.
In art, we will be looking at the artist Henry Moore and will be learning how to sketch buildings from different perspectives. We will be sharing our art with you soon.
A detailed outline of our topic is saved below on the website, I have also attached our homework grid below. Remember to keep learning those times tables and spellings.
All work is shared daily on ‘Seesaw’.
