What are we learning in Term One
Topic - 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. 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.’
English - Rose Blanche
In English we are going to be reading Rose Blanche. A story about a young German girl, Rose, who observes all the changes going on around her which others choose to ignore. She watches as the streets of her small German town fill with soldiers.
What will happen? How will she be involved?
Maths - WhiteRose
This term in maths , we will be working on Place Value, Addition and Subtraction.
P.E this term will be on a Monday and a Thursday - please wear your PE kit to school on these days.
Pupils are expected to complete their set MyMaths and Spelling Shed homework once a week and read for at least 30 mins every evening. Once children have finished their reading books, they can log into Accelerated Reader to complete quizzes on their book.
Pupils homework projects will be displayed as part of the express section at the end of the unit of work. Pupils can choose whether to present their homework as written work, ICT or something creative. If pupils decide to choose something creative such as a painting then they should choose either written work or I.C.T. for their next homework project so that they are using different skills throughout the year.
