Summer 1 Term

Our first topic in Summer 1 is ‘Crime and Punishment’. This will be linking to the famous artist Banksy. We will be conducting an artist study and looking at what inspired Banksy’s artwork. We will also be learning all about electricity and light within our science lessons. In history we are going to begin to understand the Mayan culture and when this period of time took place. This will flow nicely into our music sessions as we will be producing music linked to the rainforest.
