Term 5 and 6 -What are we learning about this term?

Term 5 and 6 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.

We made periscopes in Science and tested them in the nature area.

As part of Number Day, we worked in teams to answer questions, where the answers were all numerical. Well done to Louie, Kai, Adam and Masood for winning! We then designed our own board games.
