Term 5 Timetable
Term 5 Topic- World War 2- A Child's War
Our core text for terms 5 & 6 will be the award winning ‘Goodnight Mister Tom’ by the extremely talented Michelle Magorian, who received the 1982 IRA Children’s Book Award for the best first or second book by an author who shows unusual promise in the children’s book field.
This is a tale poised on the brink of WW II. One where a timid, scrawny Willie Beech – the abused child of a single mother – is evacuated to the English countryside. At first, he is terrified of everything, of the country sounds and sights, even Mr. Tom, the gruff, kindly old man who has taken him in. But gradually Willie forgets the hate and despair of his past. He learns to love a world he never knew existed, a world of friendship and affection in which harsh words and daily beatings have no place. Then a telegram comes. Willie must return to his mother in London. When weeks pass by with no word from Willie, Mr. Tom sets out for London to look for the young boy he has come to love as a son.

In term 4, year 6 will be reading one of Michael Morpurgo’s favourites – Kensuke’s Kingdom.
Michael disappeared on the night before his twelfth birthday, and only now can he tell his story. Finding himself washed up on an island in the Pacific, he struggles to survive on his own. With no food and no water, he curls up to die. When he wakes, there is a plate beside him of fish, of fruit and a bowl of fresh water. He is not alone….
Kensuke’s Kingdom is an exciting adventure story and will be used as the vehicle for a range of writing genres such as: balanced argument, postcards, letters, play scripts and narrative. This book is a real treat for lovers of drama filled stories.
