We started the year with a fabulous trip to France. This is an educational visit which encourages independence, responsibility and cultural awareness and includes a fun day at Disneyland Paris.
During the trip the children were treated to a French Medieval display, toured the highlights of Paris, climbed the Eifel Tower, spent a day at Disneyland and a visit to the imposing Vimy Ridge Memorial and trenches.
Our mantle this term is WW11. We have studied the text of Goodnight Mr Tom written by Michelle Magorian, Anne Frank and other wartime literature. We have used these books in many of our literacy lessons to inspire us to create a number of different text styles including our own diary extracts.
Whilst researching the war we have focused on evacuation and dressed in the clothes of the day as we enjoyed a trip to the Bewdley Museum to see appreciate what children’s home life was like during the war, the role of Anderson shelters and the types of games children played.
We will be designing and making doorstops in our DT project thinking about the ‘make do and mend’ ethos and our art topic has been inspired by the work of Henry Moore the commissioned war artist.
Our coffee morning enterprise gives us an opportunity to raise funds for the British Legion and to show case the fabulous models children and their families have created for homework, show off our slick lindy hop moves and ‘entertain the troops’ with a medley of wartime songs and poetry.
