Macaws - Year 5 2018-2019
Summer Term 2019
Curriculum Learning - Summer 1
Welcome to Macaws class. I hope you have had a restful break and are ready for the enriching term ahead.
Our history topic for this term will focus on Central America and the Maya civilization.
However, we will start this half term by looking at the book “The Errand” by Leo LaFleur.
"You can't remember how you became the errand boy of a suspected witch... you can only remember being desperate."
In this fable-like graphic novel, a young boy hurries to deliver a package - to an unusual and terrifying woman who lives deep within the sinister Whispering Woods. On the way, he must face his fears in the darkness of the forest. He passes the mystical wolves of the deep caves, slips by murderous spiders, feels the shaking of the giant as it snores, and even encounters a glimmer of hope... but what awaits him at the woman's hut?
We will write poetry inspired by the book and the children will be running errands for the warlock of the mansion on the hill.
The children will also be planning and writing their own fiction story based on “The Errand”.
It is anticipated that the children will spend both half terms studying Central America and the Maya civilization in history.
To keep up to date with what is happening in our class, make sure you regularly check our school's Twitter feed.
Should you have any queries, please feel free to contact me using the email address at the top of the page or speak to me in person at the end of the school day.
It's going to be an exciting year at Cuddington Primary School!
