This term we will be using Grimm Tales for young and old by Philip Pullman as a stimulus for our writing. Through these lessons children will be guided to examine a range of Grimm Tales and to look closely at the characteristics. Through lessons, we will analyse the language, characterisation and common story structure across many of the tales. We will make comparisons between many versions of the same story and analyse the extent to which these stories can be classified as ‘fairy tales’ Eventually we will work towards creating our own Grimm tales, planning for a balance of dialogue and narrative and using devices to advance the action.

We will continue with guided reading sessions. During these lessons children read aloud, answer questions relating to the text and discuss the text as a group. We will be reading Grimm Tales for young and old by Philip Pullman in these sessions and developing our understanding of traditional tales. 


In PSHE we will be thinking about relationships and how to to build and develop healthy connections.

In RE lessons we will start the term by searching for answers to the question, what does it mean to be a Jew? We will apply and build on our understanding of Judaism and Christianity within this topic. We will then move on to look at Rules and Responsibilities – who decides. This topic will provide opportunities to learn more about Islam and to make links and comparisons within and across the world religions studied.

We will be learning about animals including humans. We will build on prior learning and knowledge through understanding different systems within the body. We will research the parts and functions of the circulatory system, focusing on how nutrients are transported around the human body. We will explore how a healthy lifestyle supports the body to function and how different types of drugs affect the body.

We will learn about the impact of globalisation on fashion, food and how it impacts our own lives. This exciting topic will provide us with many cross-curricular opportunities including art and design and technology.
