Hi. I'm the class 3 teacher and I teach Year 5 and 6 children. Before I started teaching at this school, I spent two years travelling around the world exploring lots of wonderful countries. I love to spend as much time as I can outside although my new classroom is lovely. I enjoy all aspects of teaching but particularly art and forest school.

Class 3 - The Bewitching Butterflies: Blog items

There are no blog items to display

Welcome back everyone to a very busy Autumn Term.

English: We will be reading 'Goodnight Mister Tom' by Michelle Magorian, which is a fiction story based on a little boy who is evacuated to the country during WW2. We will be writing letters, posters, diaries, story-boards and newspaper articles linked to this story.

Maths: Ongoing work in number, geometry, measures, fractions and calculations (including times tables which children still need to practise).

Science: Earth and Space in the first half of the term and then after half term we will be learning about how light travels, shadows and how we see things with our eyes.

Topic/History: World War Two - we will be learning about how the war started, evacuees, rationing, the Blitz and how the war ended.  

RE: How do Christians demonstrate justice in their lives? Key questions: What is justice? Which well known Christian figures stand for/have stood for 'justice' and how do they do this? 

DT: Using WW2 as inspiration, we will design and create replica gas mask boxes, look at effective structures to create shelters and make wartime 'rationed' recipes.

ART: Looking at original propaganda posters and designing some of our own and improving pencil shading by drawing WW2 aircrafts.

PE: Focusing on co-ordination and netball skills.
