Term 4:

'There once lived a little boy in our beautiful and friendly village. As he walked down the street one morning, he stumbled upon a grand war memorial shining brightly in the sunshine. The plaque beneath read, "remembering our fallen heroes." Curiosity sparked within him, as he pondered on the meaning of heroism.

 

On his way home, he noticed his neighbour, Mr. Jenkins, lending his mum a bag of flour. "Thank you," his mum smiled warmly, adding, "You're my hero!" This left the boy perplexed.

Some time later the boy saw a parade, he watched closely as men young and old paraded with colourful war medals pinned gracefully to their chests. Could they be the heroes everyone spoke of?

 

That Friday, it was time for sports day, and the little boy won a medal for his achievements. As he clutched the shiny token, he wondered, what does it really mean to be a hero?'

This term, children in Pine Class will learn about World War Two. We will learn about how the war is remembered in the modern day, who key leaders were during this period, how life changed for British citizens during the war and why victory for Britain was so significant. 

 

In our English studies, we will look at the unique conditions of the blitz through newspaper writing, and the significant contribution made by the Oxfordshire and Buckingham Light Infantry during Operation Deadstick, which has close links to our local area, through a flashback story.

Is the Earth Fragile?

This term in geography, we will learn about the different biomes. We will learn about the difference between weather and climate, how climate zones create different biomes with their own unique and biodiverse eco-systems, study major biomes in detail, looking at their position and the significance of longitude and the Equator, simulate a rainforest habitat thinking about the role of the water cycle; consider the threats affecting world biomes, and how to reduce them; and think about deforestation, debating whether there is a need for this to continue. 

 

We will use our learning to consider the question, is the Earth Fragile?

Home Learning - study guides.

Term Two: How Can We Make the Most of Where We Live?

 

This term we will develop our Geography fieldwork skills by exploring our local area. We will explore all things Chilton, using our map-reading skills to distinguish our location and surrounding features, before becoming cartographers and making our own maps relevant to our studies. We will use newly acquired geographical vocabulary to describe our local area and lead our peers on walks through it. With our new-found knowledge each session, we will be asking ourselves ‘How can we make the most of where we live?’. 

Term 1: Was Greek democracy successful?
