Summer Term

During the summer term, our overall topic will be based around Equality and Human Rights. We will commence our learning in History by exploring the race relations in the UK and USA during the 1950’s and 1960’s, and what life was like during these particular periods. We will investigate why there was a civil rights movement and how key figures like Martin Luther King and Rosa Parks form the past and shape the future. During our Science lessons, we will explore how we see, using a range of observations supported by research. As artists and design technologists, we will design, create and evaluate a fashion item using textiles for the ‘Into the Woods’ Musical theme. We will learn to shape textiles using templates, join materials using a running stitch and select the most appropriate techniques to decorate and develop patterns to suit a particular mood and audience. Our end goal will be to hold a catwalk, showcasing our fabulous clothing range and sell the items to raise money for a chosen charity. 

In order to improve aspirations and learn about the possibilities of our future lives, we will learn what it takes to be a fashion designer and develop the techniques needed to create our own textile piece of clothing. During our music lessons, we will become composers and explore a range of Hip-Hop and RNB songs. We will also visit a college or university environment to develop our understanding of possible future career opportunities. 

To end a fantastic year, we will take part in an end-of-year extravaganza leavers’ production.
