Term 5 and 6- Britain at War


In English, we will be writing based on the story 'Private Peaceful' by Michael Morpurgo, creating soliloquys and persuasive speeches. We also look at poetry linked to World War 1 and creating our own poems using emotive and figurative language. In term 6, as we move onto World War 2 we will look at events from Dunkirk and evacuation and write in role as soldiers and children. Don't forget there is always Spelling Shed.



In Maths, we will be focusing on revision and investigations.



This term we are focusing on the topic 'Britain at War'. We will look at the events surrounding World War 1 and the use of propaganda. We will investigate what life must have been like in the trenches, and then create our own using clay. In our study of World War 2, we will look at the impact key events have had on British History such as the evacuation of soldiers from the beaches of Dunkirk.
