Conflict, resolution and remembrance.
What was the impact of WW1 and WW2 on our local area?
In Maths, we will be finishing off our four operations unit. The children will be exploring the order of operations and how brackets affect the process that we need to do.
We will also be looking at fractions. Within this area of maths, we will be adding and subtracting fractions, finding equivalent fractions, simplifying fractions, ordering & comparing, multiplying & dividing fractions as well as experiencing a range of problem-solving lessons around fractions.
In English, our text focus will be 'Star of Fear, Star of Hope'. This book is based on two young girls who lived in Northern France at the beginning of World War Two. We will be creating a range of narratives based on the text: diary entries, setting descriptions as well as explanation texts.
In Science, we will be exploring electricity and use a range of resources within the school as we experiment with circuits and components within a simple and parallel circuit. Our learning will be more practical as we investigate what happens within circuits when different outputs and components are used and/or added.
Within our Theme lessons, we are studying the World Wars. Our learning will focus on why both Wars began and how they ended. We will also be looking at: the Blitz; evacuation and evacuees; the Home Front, Women during the War, and what it was like to be Jewish during this period of time.
RE sees us looking at a Christian Focus, 'Was Jesus the Messiah?' We will be looking at examples within the Old Testament which talk about a 'rescuer' or 'anointed one'.
