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. Our end goal will be to hold a school carnival, which celebrates culture and diversity. Through our Geography learning, we will delve into the impact climate change is having on our planet. We will debate on the future of climate change and how we can become more sustainable. As geologists, will recognise the major threats to reducing climate change and use our knowledge to propose solutions to mitigate global warming.
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.
This term, within our community, we will explore the importance of respecting the rights of others through our RE learning. We will look at why, and in which different ways, world religions support the less fortunate: Christian Aid, Islamic Relief and Oxfam. We will also investigate why different religions try to help the vulnerable and examine the justice and fairness relating to this work.
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 develop our very own piece of music based on the theme ‘happy.’ 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.
Focus on preparation for SATS using the revision guides to practise.
