Creative Curriculum – Child of War

During this topic, we will be learning about what it was like for children growing up during World War Two.  Some of the areas we will be exploring include: evacuation; rationing; bomb shelters; and Anne Frank. We will learn about the past by looking at historical artefacts and sources.

Make sure that you can read and understand these words related to ‘Child of War’, if you don’t know the meaning please find out. Try and use these words in your writing!

What Are We Learning?

In English we are studying the gripping Michael Morpurgo story “Friend or Foe”. This will lead to the children planning and writing their own  historical adventure stories.  The children will learn how to improve their writing by using adverbial phrases and complex sentences. We will also look at different levels of formality and when to use them.

In Maths, we will be: measuring and calculating angles; learning how to use co-ordinates; converting between different units of measurements; calculating perimeter, area and volume.

In Science, we will learn how the circulatory system and the digestive system work. Alongside this we will learn how to live a healthy lifestyle.

In PSHE, our topic is “Being Me in My World”. We will learn about the Universal Rights of Children and compare different lifestyles and experiences of children across the globe.

In French, we will learn the numbers and how to greet and hold a simple conversation with another person.

We will be basing our music learning around the song “Happy” this term.

In Computing, we will continue to use Purple Mash to develop our coding skills. Then, we will learn how to create and build up a Blog.
