This term our topic is called ‘Over the Top’ and it is all about WW1 and the events surrounding this. We will be linking our writing, art work, History and Geography in with this topic, along with special dates like Remembrance Day. In our English writing work will be looking at poetry inspired from the Great War, newspaper articles and diary writing looking at the lives of soldiers in the trenches. In Mathematics we are looking at procedural Maths and in particular the four rules with large numbers. In Art we are going to be looking at poppy pictures and silhouette art and at the end of term we will watch the acclaimed adaptation of Michael Morpurgo’s ‘War Horse.’
