Journeys on Land

Our topic this half term has been Journeys on Land.  We have used the text Journey to Jo’burg as a stimulus for our work.  We have written our own stories based on the plot of the book.  In addition, we wrote persuasive letters to Naledi and Tiro (the main characters) encouraging them not to make the perilous journey from their village to Johannesburg.  As part of History, we have been exploring black history and wrote a biography about Nelson Mandela.

Pop Art

In Art, we looked at the artist Andy Warhol and his work around Pop Art, where he repeated the same picture in different colours and styles.  We used this to create our own pop art of animals that live in Africa.


Refraction - We explored the concept of refraction in Science.  We found out that a pencil in water looks like it is bent.  We found out this is because light travels through air and bends when this changes to water (a different medium).

In Science, we have been learning about Light.  As part of this topic, we have looked closely at the eye.  We created a model of the eye and then used this to help us create a labelled diagram of the eye and an explanation of how they eye works.
