What's happening this Spring?


Year 1

Year 2

Year 3

In our topic of 'Sun, Sea and Sand', we will be learning about the physical features of the seaside such as the cliffs, sea and beach.  The children will be exploring patterns using mark making and printing with seashells.  We will also be designing and creating our own beach buggy.  In addition, we will be comparing and contrasting the seaside from past and present.  To end each topic, we will be investigating artists whose work is based on mosaics.  Our final project will include creating our very own class seaside mosaic.

Like the much-loved TV show of the 90s, our topic: 'Art Attack' is a fun packed creative adventure.  The topic kicks off with an exciting arts workshop day designed to get children in the creative mood.  During the day, children will get to work with a professional artist.  They will explore many techniques using different materials.  We will also be using art to explore the past whilst looking at different artists.  We hope this inspires the children to get imaginative in their writing too.  The theme will culminate with children putting on an exhibition in our very own Hanbury Art Gallery, but we don't want to give too much away about that - you will have to come and see for yourselves. In Year 3 during the Spring term, our topics will be Pyramids and Flow.  In Pyramids, we will be learning about the Ancient Egyptians: looking at Pharaohs, Gods and Hieroglyphics.  We will be welcoming a visitor who will be delivering an Egyptian workshop and showcasing our learning in our year group assembly.  our next topic will be 'Flow'.  We will be looking at the rivers of the UK and wider afield.  We will be going to visit the River Severn and look at the effects of pollution on river life.

Year 4

Year 5

Year 6

This term, in Year 4, we will be learning about the destructive powers of nature; from volcanoes and earthquakes, to tsunamis and tornadoes.  We will learn about how and why these natural phenomena occur, and the ways in which they affect people and the environment.  We will even be making and erupting volcano models. During the Spring term, we will be learning about both the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings.  Taking a trip back in time, we will explore the key events in chronological order; including invasions, settlements and historic battles.  For our creative workshop, parents will be invited in to school to make a Saxon village, and we will also be visiting Bishops Wood, where the children will be exploring life in these times.

This term in Year 6, we will be looking at life in Tudor times. We will be cooking some traditional Tudor food; we will be learning a Tudor dance; we will be recreating a Tudor banquet! As well as this, we will look at life at the Court of King Henry VIII through our text ‘Treason’ by Berlie Doherty.
