Current 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 to unknown territory.
This topic will be taught through: English (reading historical accounts, writing non-chronological/chronological reports, letters and diary entries); History (The Second World War); and Geography (Cities of the UK).
P.E. is on a Monday.
P.E kits can be brought into school on a Monday and left at school until Friday. This will ensure that they have a kit in school if there was a need to change the day of P.E.
Please encourage your child to learn and practice their spellings each week. These can be found in their Home/ School Diary. There is space in their diary to practice "Look, Cover, Write and Check"
Homework will be given out on a Friday and should be completed and returned by the following Wednesday.
