As another week comes to an end, the learning doesn’t stop.
It’s been an immersive few weeks within our History topic (WW2). We are looking into a study of a living memory event and the changes it caused. This week, we’ve been investigating the roles that both men and women played within the war. The children researched the different roles and created powerpoints in pairs summarising the information collected. The year group are excited to learn more about this fascinating topic.
Within our English and Guided Reading sessions, we have continued to read Friend or Foe by Michael Morpurgo. The children are really enjoying learning about David and Tucky’s evacuation.
In Tag Rugby, the progress we made this week was wonderful! After our warm up games that involved collaboration and some of the skills needed for Tag Rugby we moved on to a key component of the game, passing backwards. Through races and competitions, the children gained experience of passing backwards whilst still travelling across the pitch all while working as a team encouraging others. This is something we need to work on but we are sure they will get there! Thank you Mr Owen for leading the session.
Within music, we are currently looking at WW2 songs including the famous song ‘Run Rabbit’ which is really rather catchy (and annoying).
