Autumn Term – Identity

Our topic this term is ‘Made in Nottingham’. We will be looking at how Nottingham got its name, the history of the city, where we are located in the world and about famous people who came/come from Nottingham. Reading some of their autobiographies is going to inspire us to write our own. We will be doing our very first camping trip to Colwick Adventure Park, where we will be building dens using our teamwork skills to work together and learning how to shoot a bow and arrow – just like Robin Hood! The children will also learn about the story of Robin Hood and his Merry Men. They will then be turning these newly learnt facts into comic strip stories.

During Art we will be looking at the artist Banksy and discussing if his art is vandalism or not. The children will then use different mediums to create their own ‘Banksy’ styled art. This term we will be learning about Electricity in Science. The children will be creating circuits which will link to their DT project where they will be making a light up themed Monopoly themed board game.
