 Alongside this, research what life was like during WW2 for children and for adults. Think about those children who were in the city and those who were in the countryside. Also, research the life of the men who were fighting and those who were not and the role of women at this time. Both pieces of homework are vital for our lessons and need to be brought into school on Wednesday 14th November for 5DP and Thursday 15th for 5RW.

This week in English we have been learning about ‘spoken word’ poems and having a go at performing some ourselves. There are two options for homework this week. You can find another ‘spoken word’ poem you like and learn to perform it with good rhythm and expression. You could choose a poem by one of the poets we have looked at – Michael Rosen or Benjamin Zephaniah, or you could find a new author. Instead, you could write your own ‘spoken word’ poem about a topic of your choice and perform it with good rhythm and expression.
