Year 5 and 6
Events and news:
Year 5 and 6 are now into their Spring term and are ready to work hard work again! We have already produced some fantastic work, looking at our topics: The Romans and WWII. Take a look at what our children already have learnt!
Year 5 had a fantastic day learning about the history of London, and especially the Roman period, vising The Museum of London exhibitions.
What have we been learning this term?
"In England, during the Blitz, there were lots of different places to hide during raids. Some people could afford Anderson shelters in their own back gardens, while others had to go to public shelters" Fernanda (Magpie Class)
"The Jewish people were sent to concentration camps, Auschwitz was the only camp that gave prisoners numbered tattoo's. We are also learning about Rose Blanche in our focus book) who helped Jewish people survive the camps.-Alfie (Starling Class)
"We have been learning about WWII. Children were evacuated to the country side and everyone was given ration books. They would only be able to take small amounts of belongings with them when they evacuated. I think that would feel very upsetting and terrifying." Hikmah (Staring Class)
"In Germany people were forced to go to war. Soldiers were given more food than the people in the city to give them the strength for fighting. There wasn't a lot of food." Yousef (Magpie Class)
"This term we have been learning about the Romans. Julius Caesar tried to invade England twice but failed. Emperor Claudius succeeded in conquering England. The English people said if they were left alone they would follow Roman rules and pay their taxes." Pranav and Ronnie (Adder Class)
"During the time of Roman invasion there was a woman called Boudica. When her husband died he left her to rule the kingdom with Emperor Nero. She was the queen on the Iceni and burnt down many Roman cities (for example Colchester and Londinium). Emma (Ivy Class)
"The Celts used most of their space for farming, which relied heavily on the weather. In Autumn they cut trees to prepare for the Winter. In Summer, they began growing the harvest crops. When the Romans invaded they were no longer free and joined the new Roman settlements." Gergo (Ivy Class)
