Have you made any plans for VE Day?
We would love to know what you get up to at home for VE Day.
I'm going to be having a picnic and raising a glass to my neighbours.
You might make bunting, draw pictures, bake buns, wear something to commemorate the day, watch some of the celebrations on TV, have a picnic......
Whatever you choose - have a lovely week-end

Here are two child friendly online books to help you explain and talk about the Corona Virus.

Our TOP recommendations are:

What We Will Learn in Year Six
Click the Image for a full year overview!
Our History topic is World War 2 and the Home Front. We will be taking a trip to Murton Park as Evacuees where we will learn to live as children of the 1940s.
For Science, we will be working with electricity - looking at simple and parallel circuits to design a Halloween lantern. In the second half of the term, we will look at Light - how it travels and how we can manipulate it.
In Science we will be focusing on animals and their habitats. This includes evolution and adaptation in the first half term and then we will be looking in more detail at living things and their habitats - using the creatures of North America as our focus.
We will be romping though the decades in History - from the 50s to the Teenies - looking at popular culture and key events of latter part of the 20th Century. Meanwhile, in Geography, we will be learning some mapping skills and looking in detail at our local environment.
In Science we will be learning about the body - starting with the heart, lungs and circulatory system.
