Does Invention Come With a Price?


This term, in topic & science, we are exploring the question: does invention come with a price? We will be learning about a variety of different scientists, discussing what a 'scientist' actually is and having a go at answering some BIG questions... is it only men who can be scientists? What can fossils actually tell us? Are there any real benefits to Steve Jobs' technology? 

In English, we are using the video The Alchemist's Letter as the stimulus for our writing. Through this brilliant animated film we will discover the mysterious world of alchemy...and the dangers it can hold. What really did happen to Nicholas and will Veridian suffer the same, tragic fate? Using a range of literary devices, we will explore these questions and use our imaginations to develop the Alchemist's story further.
