The topic this Half Term is 'Gallery'.

 

 

This project has an art focus and explores the artwork of a variety of artists from different periods of history and develops children’s painting skills using a range of materials. At the heart of this project children learn how to write classically structured poetry and develop additional skills in the use of figurative language and descriptive vocabulary.
 
In this project the children will learn:
• How the work of various artists throughout history has been used to express their views, and how artists’ work reflected the times they lived in;
• How artists use various skills to work with different media;
• How art and poetry can be used to express the views of the artist or poet;
• How to write a poem on a theme using figurative and expressive language;
• How to organise a display of artwork;
• How to use ICT to find information, display information and create art;
• How to use art and poetry to express feelings and opinions.


The class novel will continue looking at extracts from 'Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone'.  If your child has a copy at home it will be very useful to bring it to lessons.

 

 

We will also be reading 'Framed' by Frank Cottrell Boyce.  

 

 

The main poem we will be studying is 'The Highwayman' by Alfred Noyes.
