Autumn Term 2013

Eden Camp
To support our learning about WWII we visited Eden Camp, an old prisoner of war site in Malton, Yorkshire.  Everyone had a great day, enjoying the sights, smells and sounds of the different huts based around The Blitz, The Home Front, U Boats and the puppet show amongs others.

Design & Technology
We investigated different types of bomb shelters after our discussion about air raids.  Together we agreed a design criteria that the bomb shelters would be judged on; safe and sturdy, waterproof, comfortable and well organised, durable, versitile (camouflage or able to grow vegetables on) and cheap to make.  The children were given 1 day to make and evaluate their designs.  Well done to the winning group!

Literacy
Our journalistic writing and report unit culminated in news broadcasts and documentaries.  we wrote reports and news stories and presented them in a variety of ways to KS1 and Mr Wilson.

Evacuation
We got into role as evacuees, shared the infomation about ourselves through short interviews and came to the conclusion that all evacuees had different experiences - some positive, some negative.
               Suitcase - we took notes from different sources to find out more about life as an evacuee.

Capital One
We had a great 'maths' day at Capital One in Nottingham
