Summer Term REAL Project
What brings a character to life?
Our REAL Project this term is all about creativity, imagination and learning about how authors create characters and bring them to life in the minds of readers. Each child will explore well-known characters from stories and investigate their personality traits, the back-stories, their triumphs and their flaws. We will then create our own characters and develop their personalities, their histories and futures. They will live and breathe along side us throughout the term as we build their worlds around them and eventually place them into those worlds through our writing and art. Throughout this project we will also welcome our Year 2 Buddies and carry them along the journey with us, culminating in workshops and picnics at the end of the term as we discover… ‘What brings a character to life?’
Our focus this term is around authorial technique, and the process of developing settings and characters using high quality multi media examples ranging from Roald Dahl to Katherine Rundell, from J.K Rowling to Otis Redding. Using these examples, we are creating our own characters that will live with us throughout the term.
This term we are focussing on coordinates, types of lines, and fractions while re enforcing our number knowledge by taking part in Reasoning Club. Reasoning Club will be focussing on playing with number and being able to use our number skills to solve multi step programmes.
P.E will be on Tuesdays (Twist & Flip/Athletics) and Wednesdays (striking & fielding), Kit is essential. Throughout the term we will be sending important dates for SLCs and Trips home, and these will require permission slips.
