THE WORLD AT WAR
This half term we are going to be learning all about World War 1.
We have already been studying the use of the WWI horses and whether is was morally right. We have begun to write balanced arguments in literacy.
In maths, we will be getting to grips with fractions. We will be learning how to add, subtract, multiply and divide fractions as well as finding fractions of a whole, and finding a whole from fractions!
In history we are going to be finding out about how the war started and learning about the different countries who were involved. We will also be finding out about what life was like for people who lived during the war, both at home and on the front line.
In geography, we will learn about the countries in Europe, locating the countries involved in the war and discovering where famous battles were fought. Our art this half term will focus on the famous WW1 artist Christopher Wynne Nevinson.
Finally, our science topic this term is animals including humans and we will be learning all about the circulatory system and other systems in the body.
Don't forget to stay active! We are still running 3 times a fortnight- Week A- Monday/Thursday and Week B- Thursday- and we will be sending home the children's personal bests on their homework.
Homework is sent out on a Tuesday/due in on a Monday. This consists of a rotation of literacy, spelling and maths activities but it is really important that the children have time to read a little bit every night.
This half term, it is also parents evening. Please get in touch with the office if you haven't yet booked an appointment for the 14th/15th November.
Towards Christmas, we also have our 'Christmas Cracker' at Christ Church. Information to follow.
