We are really excited to be learning about the Homefront during World War Two and hoping to be able to answer our essential question “Are Wars only fought on Battlefields?”. Our classroom has a wartime street, a period living room with sofa, fireplace and radio. We even have our very own bomb shelter.

We have kick-started our writing this term with a focus on news reports. One morning we came into the class to find that a bomb had landed on the street. Poor Mrs Bean and the ARP warden had to answer lots of questions from the Screen Shot 2016-10-06 at 21.25.00children as they tried to find facts as journalists. We also had a German spy land on our field. The children were very careful not to let him get away before Mr Bratby and Mr Barratt came to make a citizen’s arrest.

Coming up, we will be looking at non-chronological reports and writing our own information texts on Judaism and after half term, we will be doing a novel study on Goodnight Mr Tom.

Screen Shot 2016-10-06 at 21.26.30Our numeracy has involved measuring angles to find enemy aircraft, drawing angles to hit the dams like the Dambusters and finding the area and perimeter of victory gardens. We have been trying to get quicker at recalling our times tables facts, so we need to be practising these regularly at home.

For our end of project exhibition, we will invite members of the local community to an afternoon tea, where they will be able to sample some delicious jam and cake, and listen to some of our wartime stories in our immersive classrooms.
