We will remember...
This half term we will be learning about World War 2, specifically 'The Blitz' and how this affected children . We will be answering questions:
- How will you help win the war?
- Who helped win the war?
- What was the Blitz?
- What's in the suitcase?
- How can we stay safe in the Blitz?
In the first couple of weeks back, we will learn about propaganda and how this helped win the war.
This is half term we will be looking at identifying word classes and using them appropriately in our writing . We will be learning about the different genres in fiction and how to create powerful imagery through text . In grammar we will look at noun phrases , expanded noun phrases , adverbials , relative clauses and main and subordinate clauses. We will be doing spelling quizzes daily from the year 5/6 spelling list and looking at spelling rules . We will be carrying out a film project called 'Behind the line' and writing war diaries, poetry and non-chronological reports
This first half term we will be concentrating on place value and the four operations (+ , - , X and /) , ironing out any misconceptions and consolidating the standard written method for each . We will be doing a weekly arithmetic test and daily times table challenges ( it is VERY important that you learn your tables) as these are crucial to this years learning .
