River of Knowledge
During the Autumn term, Year 5 topic will be The World of War.
We will be focusing on World War I and World War II.
For World War I, we will take a look at local history by reading some letters of a local man who joined up as a soldier. We will use the class text of Private Peaceful to drive the rest of our research into this fascinating time period. During our Art and DT lessons we will also enjoy creating WWI battle scenes and building WWI trenches.
For World War II, we will be inspired by the storyline of Goodnight Mr Tom. During computing we will research some of the major events of this conflict and for DT we will be investigating rationing. We are excited to test a number of WWII recipes and create a cookbook containing wartime recipes.
