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, make a Cruella sock puppet and models of Dalmatian dogs Cruella won’t be very impressed! We’ll learn songs about infamous villains through time and listen to film music and songs to consider how sounds are used to make characters appear more villainous. We’ll also research historical heroes using a variety of source materials and put song lyrics about our favourite heroes to familiar tunes. At the end of the topic, we’ll write comics about our everyday heroes. We’ll enjoy performing our songs about heroes and invite you to view our work in a gallery.
