Year 5 - Miss Knaggs

Autumn 1 - A Child's War

We have had an amazing half term in Y5 and we have all worked incredibly hard. We started by learning about British Values in week 1, before starting our topic of A Child’s War. We all loved our trip to Eden Camp, where we learnt so much about WWII. Across this half term we have learnt about evacuees, rationing, Anderson shelters and the use of propaganda. We also had a visit from an artist, who used printing techniques to help us create some amazing art. We have ended this half term by creating some WWII poetry, which we will be sharing with school on Remembrance Day.

In addition to our topic, we have been busy. We have been working with Middlesbrough Football club, who have been teaching us about careers and enterprise. We have also been learning outside, as part of Wilderness Schools, where we have made some fantastic dens and enjoyed melting marshmallows on the fire. We have also enjoyed many workshops this half term from Urban Chaos to the Dogs Trust and learning about Rastafari culture as part of Black History Month.
