Autumn 1 Newsletter
Term: Autumn 1
Topic: World War Two
During this half term we will be basing our learning on World War Two. We will be exploring a range of genres through reading and writing. We will be writing setting descriptions, letters and diary entries. We will be reading extracts of the novel of The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas and will watch the film version of this in order to make comparisons - if you would not like your child to watch this film please let me know.
In Maths we will continue to extend and challenge ourselves within the number topic, we will continue to look at SATs problems and focus on fractions, decimals and percentages. Our Geography will be looking at countries that were involved in WW2, our History will look at WW2 and how this shaped the world we live in today. As part of our Science work we will be looking at Light. Our RE and PSHE will be looking at Rules and asking questions such as Is it right to fight?
