Year 1

The Great Escape

During this topic we will be looking at traditional tales with a focus on Rapunzel. Throughout Power of Reading sessions we will be exploring the different characters in the story and developing our basic skills in writing. Our focus for this topic will be Design and Technology. We will be researching, designing and creating an escape  for Rapunzel using a pulley system. Following on from this, we will begin to create a soundscape with different instruments for a story we will be writing.

Year 2

Monster Mash

Our topic will all centre around the book Mr Underbed. As well as taking our guided reading and literacy focus from the text we will also be researching, designing and creating a toy to go in Jim’s bedroom. To work alongside this , in music we will be creating a jingle to help sell our toys. This will involve all aspects of the music curriculum, listening and appraising, composition and performance.  Our celebration event at the end of the topic will be a showcase for parents and families to watch our adverts.
