Learning and caring together, building a firm foundation for the future

Keep Calm and Get Ready for War!

Welcome back to term 2! We hope that you had a relaxing mid-term break.

Year 5 have been preparing for War! This week in our topic we have discussed what we already know and what we would like to find out about World War II.

What did you learn from someone else's holiday research homework?

We have listened to Neville Chamberlain's speech declaring war and wrote a news report of this famous speech and the events leading up to the outbreak of war.

Which countries were involved in World War II?

In our English lessons we have started reading our class novel 'Goodnight Mr Tom' and have used the kindles to identify descriptive words and phrases to describe the two main characters, Willie Beech and Tom Oakley.

What are your first impressions of Willie and Tom?

Finally our week ended with an interesting visit from two artists who led a paper craft session with us using actual designs from 100 years ago. These designs were created by the government in WWI to improve children's construction skills. We had to collaborate well with each other and persevere in order to complete our submarines.

How did you show resilience when the submarine building became difficult?

We are looking forward to our evacuee day on Monday!

    At first I thought Mr Tom was a mean rude but now I know he is nice and caring
