Literacy

In Literacy we will be learning about A Child’s War and life in Manchester during WWII. We will be writing letters as evacuees and about our time during The Blitz. Also, we will imagine that we are Anne Frank and write diary entries about our time in the annex.

We will be acting out the play script Bombs and Blackberries, imagining that we were living in Manchester during the Blitz.

 

Maths

This half term we will be looking at the properties of 2D and 3D shapes, reflecting 2D shapes and translating 2D shapes. We will be solving word problems on fractions, decimals and percentages and the four rules of number using our reasoning skills. Also, we will be telling the time accurately and solving varied word problems based on analogue and digital time.

 

History/Geography

In our History and Geography lessons, we will research and learn about the Battle of Britain and complete map work based on WWII.

During our Design Technology lessons, we will design, make and evaluate our own military vehicles.

In Music, we be learning and heartily singing some WWII songs and poems.

During our Science lessons, we will look at various forces including gravity and magnetism. Also, we test and make our own circuits and investigate insulators and conductors of electricity.

In our Art lessons, we will produce collages based on the Blitz.

In Computing, we will be looking at E-Safety and how to stay safe online before producing our own E-Safety posters.

 

P.E / Games

During this half term, we will be working with Ed Start on the Wellbeing through Sport programme which is aimed at nurturing the positive mental health and wellbeing of children through physical activities. The programme helps develop children’s understanding of the core life skills needed to promote positive mental health. Covering areas such as empathy, conflict resolution, assertiveness and emotional awareness, children will not only be equipped with the life skills needed to strengthen their wellbeing, but also complete at least 30 minutes of physical activity at the same time.
