Our Weekly Timetable

World Studies this term is based on World War 2. We will be studying WHY the war started and WHO was involved as well as WHAT it meant for Britain and the rest of the world. We will look at evacuation, The Blitz as well as many other turning points though-out the war such as the Battle of Britain. We will also sensitively discuss The Holocaust and discuss how this has affected the world we live in today.

Our study will culminate in a traditional WW2 Tea Dance, where we will celebrate our hard work and VE Day with singing, dancing and 1940s food.

In Art/DT, Y6 will create WW2 Blitz silhouettes as well as decoupage of The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas.

In English, we will focus on Adolf Hitler and write a biography of his life, look at the book Rose Blanche and The Arrival as well as write newspapers for key events in the war.

In Maths, we will focus on fractions, decimals and percentages as well as algebra and measures.

In reading we will become absolutely absorbed in the tale of 'The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas'.

Science will be a study of evolution and inheritance as well as diet and exercise linked to WW2.
