LION KING REQUEST
Can you help us? :)
Dear Parent/ Carers,
As you are probably already aware, in the summer, Year 5 and 6 will be performing Disney’s ‘The Lion King’ which we are all very excited about!
To ensure this is the biggest and best show Staverton has ever put on, we are looking to set up a parent support group for prop making, scenery preparation, face painting etc. We need a wide range of support and expertise!
Ideally, we would have a couple of parents who would take a lead role in this to help us collect things we may need e.g. cardboard and sorting timings for parents to make and design props and scenery. We are aware that once spring arrives, time will fly away with us and we need to start thinking about this soon.
If you would be willing to help with this, please can you let Tanya Andrews (FOSS) know by March 3rd. We will need to start generating ideas later this term.
Miss Kilbey and Mr Mead
Any ideas what our topic is for Term 4?
This term we are going to be exploring the environmental issues surrounding India. We will also be exploring traditional Indian art.
Here is the link where you can design your own face and generate your precept! Enjoy!
Our focus text in English this term is 'Wonder' by R. J. Palacio. We will be looking in-depth at the text within guided reading and then using the story structure and specific extracts to extend our own learning and apply this in our writing.
Here is a link to the 'Wonder' film trailer which is currently in cinemas.
Here is a link to 'First News' which gives you some more information about the film.
After an exciting term learning about Henry 8th, we will continuing our learning about the Tudors. We will be using 'A Tale Unfolds' to bring our learning alive, while writing and filming character profiles. Keep an eye out for these.
It is going to be a very busy term.
Well done Elephants and Rhions for putting on such a great show! You sounded fantastic. We are so proud of all that you have achieved during Term Two. What a way to end the term!
This term our focus text and T4W will be based around "The Chronicles of Narnia, The Lion the Witch and Wardrobe..."
Our first topic this term is called "How terrible were The Tudors?"
We will be having a special guest visit us in the next few weeks...
