Lower Key Stage 2

Summer 2018

Year Three

As part of our Fantasy Worlds theme for English, the children will be using Roald Dahl’s ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’ as a stimulus for their writing. We will also be visiting Cadbury World to find out how chocolate bars are made. In the second half term, the children will be writing their own adventure and mystery stories.

Our creative learning will be based on ‘The Romans’. The children will explore who the Romans were and where the Roman Empire was located. They will also find out about the lives of people who lived during this era.

 

Year Four

In the Summer Term, the children will be studying Egypt. They will be learning about how its location influences daily life and tourism. The children will also gain an understanding of the significance of famous Egyptian landmarks. Our topic will also include a visit to Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery, to find out about mummification.

In English, we will be using Michael Morpurgo’s ‘Outlaw’ to inspire the children to write about Robin Hood. After half term, our writing will be based on William Shakespeare’s ‘Romeo and Juliet’.
