In this topic, children will be looking at the Diamond Brothers book (by Anthony Horowitz) in Literacy and using it to plan and write their own pieces of fiction.
We will be Thinking Like A Historian to research and answer the question 'How and why have crimes and punishments changed over time?' We will be researching different aspects of crime and punishment throughout history and in the present day. Our non-fiction writing will be based on this.
We will be studying MC Escher and having a go at his style of sketching to enable us to Think Like An Artist.
Also, we will be Thinking Like A Person Of Faith to answer the big question of 'How do Muslims show commitment to God?'
In Science lessons, we will be studying the circulatory and digestive systems and carrying out enquiries using our Think Like A Scientist skills.
Our class book for this term is Holes by Louis Sachar.
