Welcome to Class 5
We are the oldest children in the school and we are made up of children in Year 5 and Year 6.
Our Learning Journey
This half term our Learning Journey continues to be History based, we’ll imagine what it was like to be evacuated and live with a family other than our own. We will look at what life was like for various different groups of people during the war and how impacted the lives of a range of different people. In Geography, we will be looking at the counties and cities of the UK and linking this to our knowledge of places where children were evacuated from and to.
We will link our learning in English to our learning journey topic and we will be writing a story based evacuation using what we have learnt in history and from our reading of Goodnight Mr Tom. We will also be applying our knowledge learnt in History to write an information text on WW2 and write a set of instructions to make our savoury products made in DT.
In DT this term, be linking our learning to our history knowledge. We will be designing and making a soup using ingredients that were available at the time and using vegetables that people were encouraged to grow during the ‘Dig for Victory’ campaign.
In RE we will be looking at creation stories . In PSHE, we will be looking at team work and building healthy relationships and we will be looking at writing blogs in our computing lessons.
