Termly Information Autumn 2 2019

We stepped back in time this half term to ‘The Great War’. During our topic, we explored the conditions that the soldiers had to endure as well as the actions that started World War One. Using a film as stimulus, we used drama to reinact the events of Christmas 1914 – the Christmas truce. We used this to create our own newspaper articles. In December, we quite literally stepped back to 1914 when we took part in a WW1 WOW day. Here, dressed in 1914 attire, we marched, became doctors, darned socks, crafted medals and learnt about propaganda during the war. 

In Maths, we spent time investigating the relationship between fractions decimals and percentages including equivalents. This was in addition to being introduced to the wonderful world of algebra by finding rules and making substitutions! As well as this we looked at all living things and how and what they need to survive in their environment as part of our Science topic. As Christmas was nearly upon us, we left school to embark on a whole school trip to the pantomime to see Cinderella- a truly memorable experience for all involved!
