Term 1 - A Child's War

Term 1 Learning 

A Child's War


A siren sounds, a building crumbles, a Spitfire zooms overhead. Take cover. It’s 1939 and Britain is at war. Deep down in the Anderson shelter, learn why nations are fighting and why child evacuees must make the long journey from their homes and families into unknown territory. Read the diary of Anne Frank, written whilst hiding from the terrifying stormtroopers in a secret annexe, and try to empathise with her hopes and fears. Make do and mend. Cook up a family meal from meagre rations. Delve deep into a bygone era, when loose lips sunk ships. And, as peace is declared, let’s get ready to celebrate. Mr Churchill says ‘It’s an unconditional surrender.’

As part of our Topic we will visit Dover Castle's secret underground hospital.


In Term 1 our whole class guided reading book will be 'A Boy in the Girls Bathroom'.


In Term 1, we will be focusing on place value, addition and subtraction and multiplication and division.


P.E this term will be on a Monday and a Wednesday.
