3. Lent 1 - Heroes and Villains

There are so many heroes and villains in the world – who would you like to know more about? Is it someone from the past or the present? Is your hero a famous person or someone you know, like a nurse or a firefighter?

This half term, we’ll meet Cruella de Vil to interrogate her about her wicked plans. By reading parts of 101 Dalmatians, we’ll learn all about Cruella’s character. Then, we’ll learn the song Cruella de Vil and make a flipbook animation of the story. Cruella won’t be very impressed! We’ll learn songs about the infamous Bonnie and Clyde and write dialogue for them. When we’re listening to film music, we’ll consider how sounds are used to make characters appear more villainous. Using fairy tales, we’ll examine the difference between right and wrong and write our own. We’ll also research historical heroes using a variety of source materials and put song lyrics about our favourite heroes to familiar tunes.
