Our Classroom

Pentecost Term 1 Overview

Gallery Rebels

This term, our topic focus is Gallery Rebels —all about art. We will be researching art galleries around the world. In English, we will write adverts for art galleries, using persuasive language and techniques to entice the customer. We will also write reviews of the work of Impressionist, Expressionist and Surrealist artists. Finally, we will write poetry inspired by the art we have studied. In Science, we will look at how shadows are formed, refraction and reflection of light. In music, we will explore the concept of ‘identity’ – the various elements that shape us. He children will be invited to try out different ways of making their own music, while exploring the work of some of the most influential women in music over the last 100 years. Four British female contemporary artists are featured and interviewed in the unit; all living in the UK, expressing themselves through music and with different cultural backgrounds. This time in the liturgical year is very exciting, as it is full of the celebration of the Resurrection, moving on to Ascension Day and Pentecost. We will be exploring the themes of this special time through our RE units of Death & New Life and Healing.
