Topic covered:

Summer 2:

Enterprise

 

In enterprise we will be learning about how business works, from product development to selling the product at the school fair. We will conduct our own research to find out more about our target audience and then use this research to influence our product. We will learn that this could maximise the sales of our product, which we will link to profit. We will use the DT cycle (research, design, make and evaluate) as a structure for our product development. In maths, we will be studying shape and statistics. In literacy, we will be writing persuasive adverts to aid marketing and promote our enterprise products. In book study, we will be reading a biography about Mary Seacole and her impact and legacy.

Books to enjoy at home!

 

Summer 2

 

Our Castle by the Sea by Lucy Strange

England is at war.

Growing up in a lighthouse, Pet's world has been one of storms, secret tunnels and stories about sea monsters. But now the clifftops are a terrifying battleground, and her family is torn apart.

This is the story of a girl who is small, afraid and unnoticed. A girl who freezes with fear at the enemy planes ripping through the skies overhead. A girl who is somehow destined to become part of the strange, ancient legend of the Daughters of Stone.

 

The Land of Roar by Jenny McLachlan

When Arthur and Rose were little, they were heroes in the Land of Roar, an imaginary world that they found by climbing through the folding bed in their grandad’s attic. Roar was filled with things they loved – dragons, mermaids, ninja wizards and adventure – as well as things that scared them (including a very creepy scarecrow…)

Now the twins are eleven, Roar is just a memory. But when they help Grandad clean out the attic, Arthur is horrified as Grandad is pulled into the folding bed and vanishes. Is he playing a joke? Or is Roar … real?

 

Black Hearts in Battersea by Joan Aiken

Simon is determined to become a painter when he grows up so he sets off to London to make his fortune. But the city is plagued by wolves and mysterious disappearances. The Twite household, where Simon is lodging, seems particularly shifty. Before he even gets a chance to open his glistening new paints Simon stumbles right into the centre of a plot to kill the King. And worse than that Simon is kidnapped and sent to sea! Luckily there are two friendly stowaways aboard – the feisty Dido Twite and the spoiled young Justin. But when the ship catches fire things look pretty dire. Can they escape? Will they save the king in time?
