Our new topic is called A Child's War and we are learning about World War 2. We started by discussing what we already knew about World War 2(which wasn't a great deal!). We began by creating a timeline of important events and then shaded in parts of the world to show who the British Allies, Axis Powers and Axis-controlled countries were.
In English, we are studying Michael Morpurgo and his books. We have began reading one of his novels, Friend or Foe and have written about a characters feelings and emotions. Did you know? That originally, Michael Morpurgo was a soldier in the army but decided to become a teacher. He told stories every afternoon, until, he ran out of writers stories to read so he made up his own and was encouraged to write books.
In maths, we have started studying coordinates and have reflected polygons in different quadrants.
Our new wellbeing project, Jigsaw, has started this week. Our class characters are Paws and Jigsaw Jem. We have agreed on a Jigsaw charter.
