This term our learning is inspired by our topic:

 'War and Peace'

We will investigate the question:

 How has war affected England?

We will be reading "Star of Hope, Star of Fear" and "Rose Blanche" in our English lessons and will create our own flashback stories. We will then move on to explore "When the War came", which help us to learn more about modern wars and refugees. We will be writing our reports and explanation texts.

In Maths this term, our learning will focus on numbers in the millions, calculations and fractions. We will also be completing work on different shapes and their properties.

In our Science lessons, we be learning how we see and will be carrying out a range of investigations into light. After half term we will move on to building electric circuits.

In our History lessons this term, we will be exploring some of the majors conflicts that have impacted on England since 1066. We will study the Battle of Hastings and the War of the Roses in more detail, before moving on to a full study of life in Britain during World War 2.

Here are some of the books we will be reading during our English lessons.
