Our Topics

 

World War Two

Our topic for the Autumn term is 'WW2'.

We will study ‘Friend or Foe’, a narrative text set in World War Two. Using this key text we will first write narratives based on the existing plot, followed by creating our own chapter within the book. Key grammatical skills will include: expanded noun phrases, a variety of clauses, effective dialogue and fronted adverbials in our writing.  We will move onto studying non chronological reports and write our own reports based on WW2 planes and air-raid shelters. 

In history, we will carry out a depth study into the events of World War Two, particularly in England. Areas of focus include: countries involved in WW2, The Blitz, Evacuation, Rationing and Women at Work. We will develop our understanding of primary and secondary sources, as well as bias in different accounts. We will experience a workshop about evacuation and a National Rail visit to a station.
