Each half term in English, we focus our work around a novel.
This half term (Until October) we will be reading Who Let The Gods Out by Maz Evans.
This story is about a young boy called Elliot who has a poorly mum. He is in trouble at school and his home is under threat, but a shooting star crashes to earth and changes his life forever. The star is Virgo - a young Zodiac goddess on a mission. But the pair accidentally release Thanatos, a wicked death daemon imprisoned beneath Stonehenge, and must then turn to the old Olympian gods for help.
We are also going to be reading a variety of Myths and Legends. We will be exploring many stories including; Sedna The Sea Goddess, The Wooden Horse of Troy, Odysseus, Theseus and the Minotaur, Osiris and Isis and many more. We will compare the stories for similarities and differences and we will even create our own mythical stories.
Next half term (From November to December) we will be reading The Iron Man by Ted Hughes.
Mankind must put a stop to the dreadful destruction caused by the Iron Man. A trap is set for him, but he cannot be kept down. Then, when a terrible monster from outer space threatens to lay waste to the planet, it is the Iron Man who finds a way to save the world!
