We will first be exploring the significance of Malala Yousafzai a Pakistani children's education activist, through the book "Malala's Magic Pencil". We will then consider Oliver Jeffer's book, " Here we are" to think about what change we would like to see in the world. Children will write a discussion text, arguing why and what they would change in the world. This will be followed by writing some free verse poetry.
Afterwards, we will be reading a variety of Greek Myths such as "Arachne the Spinner" and "Theseus and the Minotaur". The children will identify the key features and characters found in Greek Mythology and explore these in detail before creating their own Greek Myth.
