Around the World for FMN

Year 5 ran a mile to raise money for the Forget Me Not Children's Hospice. Everyone completed a mile, if not, more, and they should be very proud of themselves. We also researched the hospice to find out what they do and then created persuasive posters and paragraphs to encourage children to donate. 

Their work then became part of a whole school display. 

Literacy

We have been learning about the features of information texts. We have looked at some examples of these and then planned and wrote our own. In our leaflet, we compared two aspects of our science topic. 

History

This half term, we are learning about World War Two. Children are really enjoying and engaging with the topic. We have begun our topic by creating our own Anderson shelters and thinking about how we would feel as a an evacuee. We have also found out how the war started. But, we have got lots more to learn.

We have also visited Lotherton Hall to learn more about evacuees during the war. We learn't how to write Morse code and how to bandage a wounded soldier. We also helped the house keeper turn the hall into a hospital by suggesting what different rooms could be. During the air raid warning we sang songs in the Chapel.
