LKS2: Snowdon

Term 5

Girly graffiti wall art with beautiful elements

Hop on the bus and take a trip downtown, where the lights are bright, and every street has a story to tell.

This term, we’ll write an information leaflet about our town. Using digital mapping tools, we’ll identify the streets and buildings that we saw. We’ll investigate cities around the world and find out how they’ve changed over time. We’ll have questions for you about where you work or places you often visit, and we’ll present the data we have collected. As part of our design work, we’ll build a model urban landscape, create dramatic light effects and find out how light is used to keep people safe at night.

At the end of the ILP, we’ll create a sign for our town, thinking about imaginative wording and appealing colours. We’ll invite you to an installation featuring our signs, discuss where they’ll be displayed and why.

Help your child prepare for their project
Take a trip to the city! Why not photograph interesting buildings and make a scrapbook? You could also research urban artists and add your favourite images to your scrapbook. Alternatively, you could visit a churchyard to go gargoyle spotting! Take photographs and try to recreate them at home using modelling materials.  

We will be exploring the exciting text ‘Emil and the Detectives’ for our Demonstration Reading text and will be looking at all the exciting and unfamiliar language linked to our topic.

We will be using the Writing Rainbow to enhance our writing using Jane Considine’s ‘The Write Stuff’ and will once again be zooming in and out on a variety of exciting lenses to develop sentence skills. This will be based initially the legend of ‘Beowulf’ which links incredibly well with our topic.

To aid fluency and comprehension in reading we are continuing to use Hooked on Books, which has helped the children to really immerse themselves in the text and come up with thoughtful, insightful and in-depth responses to particular language choices made by the author. We will be beginning with the text ‘There’s a Viking in my Bed’ by Frann Preston-Gannon.

Home learning activities for the term will be uploaded onto Satchel One, you will also have a home learning workbook to complete.
