We do PE on Wednesdays!
With the Dreaded SATS well out of the way and a fun and relaxed half term holiday under our belts, we have returned to school for a VERY busy final few weeks at school! Rehearsals are now in full swing and the class (as well as the rest of Key Stage 2) are extremely excited to be doing A Midsummer Night’s Dream as the KS2 performance this year. To support this, in class we are switching our focus away from Natural Disasters and onto Shakespeare, a (brief!) tour of some of his plays and a study of the Elizabethan era.
Within this we will be exploring the language used in Shakespearean plays and have some fun translating key parts of the plays into more modern day ‘text’ spk (see what we did there!?) including ‘emojis’ too! Obviously we will be having a bash at some acting and even writing our own play scripts to perform.
Through art we will be improving our life drawing skills whilst having some fun with Elizabethan portraiture – watch this space for a few examples!
With the big move to secondary school mere weeks away, we will also be undertaking a block of work focussing on transition. In the next eight weeks we will be visiting Safeside in Birmingham to learn about all aspects of keeping safe; we will also be extending our learning around internet safety, peer pressure, drugs and alcohol as well as relationships and sex education.
