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. Our class reader is Carrie's War, by Nina Bawden.
In Science, we will be completing the Chemistry unit, 'Changing and separating Materials'.
In RE, we will be asking the question, 'Why do some people think that life is like 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.
