Class 4 Autumn term- WWI & WWII
This term, the children will be learning about two significant events in history during 1914 to 1918 and 1939 to 1945. Most of our learning will be cross curricular, linking subjects such as geography, history and art with our WWI and WWII theme.
We will cover what life was like in Britain during these periods, what war is and how it changed over a short period of time and knowledge of what life was like on the front.
In English, children will read War Horse and Goodnight Mr.Tom as well as watching scenes of from the movie and television programme to support their creative writing.
In Science, we are learning about:
- Humans and Animals: Circulatory systems, transportation of water and nutrients, healthy lifestyle, benefits of exercise and impact of drugs and alcohol.
- Forces and Electricity: balanced and unbalanced forces, gravity, air resistance, water resistance, mechanisms, circuits (drawing and making) and circuit investigations
