Our History topic this term is the Second World War, where we will be looking at the significance of the Battle of Britain and the role women played in the war effort. This is a really cross curricular topic where we will be combining our literacy lessons with our class text Carrie's War, devising our own rationed recipes in food tech and having a live debate on whether children should have been evacuated or not. We will be looking at the war sketches of Henry Moore and re creating our own shelters drawings thinking about perspective.

PE every Tuesday afternoon tag rugby and Thursday mornings dance (indoor)
Children are currently to come to school wearing their PE kits. As the weather turns please can you make sure that the children have plain dark coloured tracksuits bottoms.
Homework is set on a Friday and is to be handed in by the following Wednesday. There is an expectation that children read at least 4 times across the week and that they work on their set times table on Rock Stars. Please could you sign the reading diaries to show that your child has read (either to an adult, or to themselves).
The weekly homework will involve a maths task, a literacy or topic based activity and a spelling pattern or year 5/6 words task to practice.
