We have done so much this week! It began with being immersed into life during the Blitz and we’ve written some very emotive diary entries as children during that time, talking through some of the experiences we went through and how it made us feel. We then continued to construct our Anderson Shelters and some are starting to look like 5 star hotels with beds and duvets and home grown vegetables in our ‘Dig for Victory’ gardens! We’ve covered percentages in Maths and have learned all about how animals have adapted to their environments over time. Towards the end of the week we were visited by some people from the NSPCC who reminded us to speak out when we needed to and to be clear on who our trusted adults were if ever something made us feel uncomfortable. We are learning so much grammar and are also finding the book ‘Wonder’ both moving and challenging. We are learning to really develop our answers to comprehension questions by looking for evidence and using quotations to illustrate our points and we are digging deeper to try and find the answers to those more subtle questions that require inference and deduction. We can order our lunches and can follow some classroom commands in Spanish and are learning some World War 2 songs. It’s been a really full week!

Happy New Year! 2020 has certainly started off very busily: we have all been working so hard this week!

Our English and DT work this term is focused on World War II. We have written reports about how World War II started and started to look at how the war effect people who were living in Britain at the time.

We found out that you could buy an Anderson Shelter for £7 if you earned over £5 per week. We have started to design our own air raid shelters and look forward to making this in groups next week.

We have started working in new groups for Reading and we are reading a book called Wonder by R J Palacio – we’re already hooked as we wait to find out what happens when August starts school.

Evolution and Inheritance is our science topic this term. This week we had to take on the role of a parent or offspring and see if we could find our other family members using inherited characteristics. After that, we used our understanding to inheritance to create offspring for a Mr Men and Little Miss couple of our choice – there were some interesting combinations!
