Term 3 – War and Peace
This term, Year 5 and 6 are learning all about life during World War 1. They will start this topic by interactively looking at what life was like in a school during these times and will discover how treacherous life in the trenches was. The children have already shown a great enthusiasm for this topic and we’re hoping to celebrate the end of our topic with a Street Party! Watch this space!
This term, Year 5 and 6 are exploring the Earth and beyond!
We’ll be doing a lot of science as we find out about our solar system and the planets, sun and moon. We will find out in detail about how night and day occurs along with the learning about the phases of the moon
After all of our investigating into the force of gravity and constellations, we’ll be designing and making our very own rockets and maybe even helping Santa fuel his sleigh in time for Christmas!
Weekly homework (Maths and Literacy) will be given out on a Friday to be returned by the following Wednesday.
