Welcome back, for a new term!
We hope you have all had a lovely rest over the Christmas Holidays and are eager to return 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 starting with the book Mini Rabbit Not Lost by John Bond. We will be writing our own versions of the story using speech and fronted adverbials.
In Guided Reading, we will be sharing the story M Penguin and the lost treasure by Alex T Smith. We will be going with him on his journey to solve the mystery at the Museum.
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!
