This Term's topic is
Our topic this term is the fantastic Blitzed! We will be learning a lot about World War 2 with a big focus on how it affected life back home in Great Britain. We will be looking at aspects such as the frontline, rationing, the homefront and the evacuation.



Do you have any ideas for this page? Why not let your teacher know! 
Thank you for your support.

Please complete the rounding numbers sheets sent home with your child.



For your homework this week, we would like you to think about some games and activities that might have been played on the journey that an evacuated child would have taken. For example, you could design word searches or crosswords or think of simple card games. We look forward to seeing them.



Please complete the times-table challenge. Time yourself to see how fast you can complete the grid, then find out what a square number is and colour them in neatly.



Our first week back after term will be devoted to The Armistice. All year groups in the school will be involved in work related to World War 1.

During half term Year 5 will need to research information about life in the trenches during World War 1. They will need to gather facts, pictures and other general information about the following aspects of life in the trenches:

  • Purpose of the trenches.

  • Design and layout of the trenches.

  • Health, hygiene and disease in the trenches.

  • Weapons used and clothing worn in the trenches.


    Your child will have the responsibility to research one or two of these areas as part of their group presentation.

    Your child will know which area they have been given.


    As this is part of a whole school Armistice celebration, we would like the homework to be returned to school on Monday 5th November.


    In addition, if you have any “pop-up” books , “lift the flap” books or other books with unusual 3D pages, we would appreciate the children bringing these to class.



The homework is for the next 2 weeks.

Please could you make a model of an air raid shelter. You can use any materials you choose.

We hope you enjoy working together on this project!


03/10/18 - The homework this week is to learn your tables. Work on your 2's 3's 4's and 5's to improve your speed and recall. We will be playing games to see how fast you can be - there may even be a test!

If you want to do some extra work you could try to find out about the different types of air raid shelters. This will help with the class work next week. You do not need to hand in any work.
