Welcome to Darwin Class!
I hope you all had a wonderful break and are looking forward to a brilliant final year at Woodchurch C.E Primary School.
This term our topic is focused on World War II. We will be looking at various aspects of the war and we will be exploring our topic in History, Art and D.T. lessons.
In English we are basing our learning on WWI and WWII texts including, ‘War Game’ by Michael Foreman and ‘Letters from the Lighthouse’ by Emma Carroll. WWI poems will also be studied this term. We will be analysing ‘Dulce et Decorum Est’ and ‘In Flanders Fields’ and comparing them, in preparation for writing our own poems from the perspective of an object during WWI. We will also be writing newspaper reports using Operation Dynamo as our focus.
In Maths, we will be extending our knowledge of place value through reading and writing large numbers, ordering and comparing, rounding, identifying the value of digits and much more.
In Science, we will be learning about Evolution and thinking about Judaism in R.E.
To the right, are some websites that can help with times tables, as well as some links to sites with information about WWI AND WWII.
We have many exciting things to look forward to this year and it will certainly be a memorable one!
Please check back throughout the year to find pictures, examples of our work and updates on any exciting news we have for you!
Darwin Class members now have a login to 'Read Theory'. Please find the link to the webpage to the right. Children can log in at home to earn more 'Knowledge Points' and to progress onto higher levels. This can also be recorded in their reading records as 'independent reading'. There is no need to record scores or texts completed as I can track this from my account. Thank you 🙂
