Learning information
Autumn Term Topic

This project has an ICT focus and teaches children how to gather information from a range of sources and use a range of packages to draw, paint, animate and record sounds. At the heart of this project children will write narrative and fantasy stories using a comic and storyboard format and develop additional skills in the use of speech marks and captions. 
The children will have opportunities to apply their skills and understanding by creating their own superheroes to battle the villain Dr Evilblood.

In this project the children will learn:
• To use ICT to find and present information including film and animation;
• To understand the features used by authors and cartoonists in comics and film to describe superheroes;
• To identify healthy eating habits;
• To read comic strips and dialogue fluently;
• To design a comic strip and use it to tell a story;
• To use music movement and musical instruments to express the characteristics of fictional characters;
• To identify acceptable behaviour and give reasons for your choices;
• To identify real life ‘superheroes’ and describe their lives.
