Welcome to 5MT
Our connector this term is
We will be exploring World War II, with a particular focus on The Blitz. We will be looking at the bombing of major metropolitan areas and the evacuation of children from London to the countryside. We will start by reading and examining war poems, then writing and performing our own compositions. In keeping with the evacuation theme, we will write letters from the perspective of an evacuee.
We will look at the geography of Europe and the countries involved in the conflict. In History, we will be considering the impact of The Blitz on daily London life. We will also be creating our own menu that reflects the food that were available at the time and the notion of rationing that was put in place to ensure that everyone had enough.
Reading is so important.
Please ensure that your child reads their home/school reading book every day for a minimum of 10 minutes as well as writing a comment in their record book about what they have read.
