What we are doing this term:

In Year 5 and 6 we will be learning about World War II in a range of different curriculum areas. In English we will be exploring the story of ‘Goodnight Mister Tom’, we have already visited the graveyard to aid us in descriptive writing! In History and Geography we will be focusing on the local aspects of World War II and the impact it had on Nottingham. We will also be looking at how the children were affected, focusing on evacuation. In RE we are focusing on faiths during World War II and the impact this had. Our artist focus this term is Jasper Johns, we will be looking at his pieces and evaluating them before creating our own. Georgia O’Keefe and her amazing flower artwork will also be a focus, we will recreate her beautiful poppy picture. In Science we will be covering Electricity. As ‘Make do and mend’ was such an integral part of rationing in war times, we will be creating our own sock puppets using recycled materials in Design and Technology.

The children have now received Whole School Homework which has a list of possible homework tasks that the children can partake in based our topic. Encouragement from you to make this real ‘Take Care’ work would be appreciated. Here are some links of websites for your child to do extra research or to help them to complete their homework:
