Our learning this term is based around ‘The Lost Thing’ by Shaun Tan. The story is set in a strange city where hardly anything unusual happens. In English we will be learning how to write an account of the lost thing on a postcard, as well as creating our own story based around the main ideas of the story.
In Topic, we will be learning about the Second World War, particularly how it affected children like us. We will be learning about evacuations, rationing and life in London during the Blitz. Additionally, we will be visiting the RAF museum to experience a replica WW2 classroom.
In Maths, we will firstly be learning about shape and angles. We will then be moving on to fractions. We hope to do lots of open ended investigations on maths to allow the children to make their own interesting discoveries. Similarly, in science we will investigating states of matter and learning in a scientific manner.
