WW2! What was it like for children like you?
This term we will be learning all about World War 2, what it was about and the effect it had on children in Britain.
We will be asking questions such as:
- What was the Blitz?
- Why were children evacuated?
- What was rationing?
- Why did people need to build shelters?
- How did people celebrate the end of the war?
At the end of the term (3.4.19) we will be visiting Beaumanor Hall to reflect on our learning and experience life as an evacuee!
We will also be linking our art, D&T and English topics to our learning challenge! We will be producing some powerful blitz art, writing newspaper articles and diary entries about experiences of war and carrying out a Make-Do-And-Mend project where we will 'up-cycle' some old clothing into a bag!
Please bring in an old t-shirt (or similar) for this project!
If you have any artifacts/photos at home that you think could be used to enhance our learning - please bring them in too!
Are we heading for a meltdown?
This term we are learning all about rainforests and why they are so important for our planet. We will be exploring how deforestation has such an impact on the planet as well as how other human activities are causing global warming and climate change and what we can do to help.
We will also be discussing the impact these problems are having on animals around the world - including humans!
