Our topic for the Autumn Term 2019 is.......

'Could You Survive War and Conflict?'

We have an exciting term planned! Our essential question is, ‘Could you survive war and conflict?’ We are planning to dress as evacuees and travel to Nothe Fort in Weymouth, Dorset where we will look at WW2 artefacts, have a 1940s style school lesson with feather quills and ink pots, learn about rationing and old money followed by a visit to a shop with rationed items, visit a house and take part in house duties such as washing by hand and using a mangle to squeeze water out and experience an air raid siren and take cover in an Anderson shelter.

 

In science, we will be studying how light travels and how we can direct it. We will be having a visit from the explorer dome and staff from Treliske hospital to show us how they use light in endoscopic procedures. The children will use all their knowledge of light and how it travels to design and create a periscope.

 

Our literacy will be focusing on Anne Frank’s Diary. We will be examining what day-to-day life in the annexe was like for her and her family. We will be using the Silver Sword to write flashbacks and create some powerful descriptive writing. We will be looking at the amazing true story of a British airman who jumped 18,000 feet from a burning plane and survived! Finally, we will be looking a WW2 poetry and writing our own.

 

We will learn about rationing and create food from WW11 recipes. The food made will be eaten at our VE party to celebrate the end of the war.

 

Our legacy will be a publish book showcasing all of our work this term that will be sent locally to Cable and Wireless in Porthcurno, Nationally, the Imperial War museum in London and internationally to the Anne Frank museum in Amsterdam, Holland.
