For this week I've included information on the history of the Thames.
I hope you are finding our topics interesting.
One way of making it more interesting may be to turn it into one of theses
Project, Poster, Power Point, Painting, Poem
Respond to the topic in any way that grabs you and use your own ideas to make it unique.
Use another P that can help you:...... Parents. They have been a long time on the Planet and
Possibly/Probably will have interesting ideas.
I will be interested to see what you come up with.
Not long until you are year six so.... stay confident.
and all the best always.
Mr. Stephen Russell
Paintings of the Thames: there are some fantastic paintings by GREAT artists of the Thames see
images on Google. ( I wish I had been asked to do that when I was your age)
Anti-racism is an important topic that we need to address so we are going to explore the poetry
of Benjamin Zephaniah
Benjamin Zephaniah writes poetry and speaks out against injustices.
Enclosed is some information about him and what he believes
There is a video called You Dream and other videos where he recites his poems.
Your parents may wish to go through the poems with you.
His poetry will be part of our anti-racism topic this term. But this download should help you
Read it but you don't have to do the comprehension but it should help you to
think about and be ready to talk about racism and injustices.
Enjoy the good weather
