Current Topic 

Frozen Kingdom

Welcome to the planet’s coldest lands, which are incredibly beautiful, yet often deadly. This half term, we’ll start by making and observing icebergs. We’ll then find out more about them using non-fiction books. We’ll learn technical vocabulary so we can write reports in the role of engineers. Using globes and maps, we’ll identify the polar regions, comparing the Arctic and Antarctic. We’ll also think about how we can protect the polar environment. Then, we’ll investigate the tragic story of the RMS Titanic, and find out about the people on board. When we’re more familiar with the polar regions, we’ll write exciting stories from the Ice Bear and journals from the perspective of Ernest Shackleton. Researching our favourite polar animals will be fun, and we’ll create animal artwork inspired by the Inuit people.

World War 2

A siren sounds and a Spitfire zooms overhead! It’s 1939 and Britain is at war. This half term, we’ll imagine what it was like to be evacuated and live with a family other than our own. Using different source materials, we’ll learn about evacuation and write letters to our families ‘back home’. We’ll plot the Second World War’s events on a timeline and learn about rationing and the Battle of Britain. From a range of maps, we’ll identify safe and dangerous places during the war. After reading Letters from the Lighthouse, we’ll write our own diaries. From a range of sources, we’ll find out about children and school during the war and learn about discrimination that existed at the time. We’ll learn about what it was like during the Blitz and think about how soldiers might have felt. In D&T, we’ll make Anderson shelters.
