Keep The Home Fires Burning
During this topic on World War Two, our main focus will be on the lives of ordinary men, women and children and the part they played in the war effort. We will learn about rationing, the home front, digging for victory, ‘make do and mend,’ the Home Guard, the Land Army Girls, the Blitz, the experience of evacuee children and keeping cheerful!
Our English work will be based around historical narratives, with a focus on characterisation. We will also learn how to write a discussion text, using our knowledge of WW2.
In science we will be learning about solids, liquids and gases. We will find out about reversible and irreversible changes by exploring dissolving, filtration, evaporation and sieving.
In RE, we will be asking the questions, 'Why do some people think that life is a journey?' and 'What significant experiences mark this journey?' We will be making comparisons between religions, thinking about how and why people mark the significant events of life.
