Welcome back everyone. I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and New Year.

We will be looking at a variety of traditional stories from around the world such as; Little Red Riding Hood, Rama and the Demon King, Hansel and Gretel etc. and creating our own versions of these stories. We will also be creating information leaflets and posters about how people celebrate in different cultures.
We will be using google earth and atlases to locate different countries around the world and plot them onto a map. We will also be using maps during our Literacy sessions to map story journeys.
We will be investigating different materials and how they can be used. We will also be sorting materials into different categories.
We will be using colour to create new effects. We will be printing patterns in the style of Rangoli patterns using different materials to create texture and effect. We will be looking at the artist Ritchie Collins and using our noticing skills to imitate his style of art.

We will then use this information to create posters on PowerPoint and Publisher using our skills on the computer to change the style and colour of the writing and insert pictures.
