Miss Fitzpatrick and Mrs Haywood-Harris' Class 2017-18
Roald Dahl BFG
This half term we are learning all about what life is like in Giant Country. In Science, we will be testing and making various concoctions and experimenting with dream jars.
“Sometimes human beans is hearing wondrous music they is getting shivers down their spindels.” Our music will be composed using computing, where we plan, record and edit a trailer for a new movie based on the book.
The giants travel to lots of different places to find humans to gobble up. We will identify some of them on a map. For our local study we shall be looking at the Wrekin, and may even take a hike up the hill.
The BFG dreams of having an 'elefunt' to ride through green forests on. We will talking lots about our own dreams and aspirations. The BFG is picked on by the other giants. Use this as a starting point for discussions about bullying and how we can help those who are affected by it.
In Art we will be trying to stop the bad dreams with our dream catchers and making a huge sculpture. We will need lots of newspapers for this task, so please send in any unwanted papers with your child.
We look forward to sharing our GIANT learning with you at the exhibition Wednesday 18th September, 2-3pm and Thursday 19th September, 3-4pm.
