Term 5 – WW2 and Coasts
This term we continued our learning around World War II but our focus moved from ‘Remembrance’ to ‘The Home front’.
We made a visit to our school air raid shelter to experience what it would have felt like during a bombing
We then spent our hook day experiencing the idea of ‘Make, mend and do’. We all made our own hand sewn bags, in the style of a 1940s saccule.
We have read the book Skellig this term, by David Almond. We have really enjoyed this book, we even spent some time role playing the characters to enable us to really think about the characters before creating our own writing.
We had great fun celebrating our learning landing with a V.E. day style street party. We showcased all our learning, and celebrated with all things read, white and blue.
We started our 2 week topic on coasts with a zoom call with a gentleman from the R.N.L.I. We learnt a lot about the charity and how to keep safe at the coast.
We then put on our geographer caps and used clinometers to measure the height of tall objects, Geographers use clinometers to measure, and monitor, the height of cliffs at the coast.
