Overview

Autumn Term

Fiction Genre

Children will be exploring the features of different fiction genres e.g. fantasy, ghost, fairytale. This culminates in each child writing either their own ghost or fantasy story. Prepare to be scared and spooked by gruesome tales or alternatively, if you prefer, travel into a land of fantasy and make believe!

Myths

Linking with our topic ‘Groovy Greeks’ children will learn about the wonders of Greek mythology. Children will empathise with Hercules, understanding the magic and mystery of a legend and hopefully capture this in their own mythical writing.

Newspapers

Using the stimulus of the story of Hercules, children will have the opportunity to become journalists; reporting live from the Acropolis, interviewing Greek citizens, gathering information and producing their own newspaper article.
