Autumn 2:  I'm an evacuee, get me out of here!

In this topic, we will learning about a significant turning point in British history through looking at the impact of WWII.  In History, we will study a range of sources to explore the significance of the Blitz, what life was like as an evacuee and the impact of the war on children, women and men.  In English, we will complete a book study on Rose Blanche, write information pages, letters and stories.  In Music, we will listen to songs from WWII times and improve our reading of music notation.  In Art we will create propaganda style posters and blitz silhouettes.

Autumn 1:  Mission to Mars

In this topic, we were inspired by the wonders of space.  Using virtual reality headsets, we took our own journey into space.  We developed our scientific understanding of the solar system and the movement of the earth and moon around the sun. Having designed and created models of our own imaginary planets, we wrote a report about our planets.  In English, we also created fact files about space and wrote stories set in space.  In music, we listened to a wide range of music inspired by space, including the Planets Suite by Holst. We described the planets in French.  Our topic finished by creating our own space-themed cam toys.
