This term we have continued our learning journey through the virtual platform ‘Seesaw’. This has provided us with some amazing and very out of the box learning experiences which are providing us with opportunities to become more independent thinkers and learners.
Let’s look back on the fantastic learning that has taken place!
Our topic this term was ‘Children of the Second World War’. We looked closely at the evacuation of children from the big cities to the countryside.
First, we identified the features of a narrative.
In Literacy, we wrote Narratives that had told the story of evacuated children. We explored the Narrative and broke it down into sections this helped us have a clear idea of what would happen to the characters and where they would go.
Making sure that we included exciting and descriptive language. To do this we read through our work and edited.
Virtual learning has helped us to present work in different ways. We have been able to present work using pictures, videos and voice notes.
Diary entries. We looked at planning and writing recounts in the role children that had been evacuated.
Support for Spelling
In Mathematics, we explored many topics, the virtual learning experience has helped us to become more creative with our maths work. This term we covered statistics and Geometry -properties of shape.
Throughout this term, we have looked at events of the Second World War. Using Seesaw and other media sources to conduct our own research about the events. We looked at the ‘Blitz’, ‘Evacuation’, ‘D-day Landings’ and ‘VE-day’.
In science, we have looked at actions and reactions. Then we conducted our own investigations. Next, we designed and built our own modes of transport.
After exploring different structures of bridges we designed and built our own.
