Welcome back, for a new term!
We hope you have all had a lovely rest over the Christmas Holidays and are eager to go for a new and exciting term here at Wilbury.
Our Creative Curriculum in school this term is Marvellous Machines. The subject areas we will be covering are Art, DT and Music. We will be studying the artist Heath Robinson focussing on the detail within his machine designs. We will be working on improving our art and design techniques by using different mediums as well as reviewing our work. In Music, we will be learning about rhythm and layering creating ensembles contexts, using voices and musical instruments, which link to machinery designs. We will also understand how mechanical systems are used in toys such as gears, pulleys, cams, levers and linkages. From this we will be designing, making and evaluating our own mechanical toy as well as a pop-up card.
In English we will be looking at Aesop’s fables and reading the book War and Peas. From this, we will then write our own fables following a similar storyline. We will also be writing our own play scripts using the text ‘The Adventures of the Dish and the Spoon’.
In Guided Reading we will be sharing the stories Operation Gadgetman! by Malorie Blackman and The Legend of Spud Murphy by Eoin Colfer.
Maths lessons will be taught from our Power Maths scheme and over the year, we will cover lots of new maths skills and adding to skills we already have and developing them even further!
