Our Cornerstones topic for the Summer term is Gods and Mortals. For our memorable experience we will Meet Zeus (Ζεύς)… king of all the gods, ruler of the skies, cloud gatherer and master of rain. Listen to his torrid tale of how he fought and conquered his father, Cronus, then drew lots with his brothers, Poseidon and Hades, to become supreme ruler of the gods. Find out about his deadly powers and his lightning thunderbolt which he hurls at those who displease him. Hear why he carries his sceptre and his regal eagle. God of Justice and Mercy, the protector of the weak, and the punisher of the wicked… What can we discover about the mighty Zeus?
Our topic includes a lot of history, geography, English, art and design and PE focuses.
During our Engage stage we will look at character profiles, features of human and physical geography, source material, significant figures and throwing techniques.
The Develop stage of our topic allows us to look at; instructions and commands, recounts, different types of relationships, sequences of movement, myths and legends and the mintaur.
Innovate stage – A mysterious box with a heavy lock is found. A sign on the box says ‘Do not open’. What should we do?
Throughout the Express stage of our topic, we will create movement patterns, draw sketch maps, use our modelling and making skills and make a PowerPoint Presentation to share with the rest of the class.
