Autumn 2

This term our topic is... 

We will be working towards answering the question: What makes a great performance?

Starting with a bang - the children will put together a talent show in one day and perform it to the rest of the school!  We will review this to gather all the amazing positives and some areas for improvement before we conduct auditions and begin to practise our KS2 Christmas play.

Going to Mansfield Theatre to see a pantomime will give us more to think about for what makes a great performance and hopefully further aspirations for our own play!

During the term we'll be writing reviews, doing some advertising and marketing for our play, writing formal and informal letters and lots more!!

We will investigate the following questions:

  • Is sound important to theatre and film?
  • What is the history of sound in the film industry?
  • How do costumes have an impact on performance?
  • How do Bollywood films show life in India? 

Finally, we'll be combining our art and computing skills to create stop motion films with some plasticine models.  Firstly we'll look at animations such as Wallace and Gromit , Shaun the Sheep, Box Trolls  and Morph  to show where the skills we will learn could lead to.

It really inspired us to work hard and put the effort in to our learning.  Toby

05/11/18 Class 4's put on a talent show for the rest of the school.

It was good.  Everyone followed instructions well and no one was too scared to perform on stage.  I didn't want to do it at first, but I'm glad I did.  It was fun!
