During the Summer Term, our topic is the Great War.  We will be learning about how the First World War started and the outbreak of war.  We will look at life on the Western Front and trench warfare as well as life on the home front.  During the topic we will look at key events during the war as well as the importance of remembrance and how we celebrate those who fought and died during the war.  We will be reading Private Peaceful and War Horse by Michael Morpurgo in guided reading.

Extreme Earth

 During our topic of Extreme Earth in the Spring Term, we looked at all things extreme.  In geography we will focus on mountains and mountain environments.  We will identify the different types of mountains and how mountains are formed.  Pupils will look at some of the most impressive mountains as well as their ecosystems and the impact of tourism on them.  In art we will be showing perspective and illusions in our work to draw landscapes including mountains.  In science we will look at the impressive circulatory system and how to keep our bodies healthy.  During Guided reading we will be reading Pig Heart Boy by Malorie Blackman and Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens.
