Welcome to Year 5/6 - Mars!
We are a mixed class of Years 5 and 6 pupils. Our teacher is Mrs Hughes and Mrs Morton is our Classroom Assistant.
This half term we are studying World War 2. We will be starting with the outbreak of war - what events led up to it and which countries were involved. The evacuation of children from the cities to the countryside will be taught and we will be studying 'Goodnight Mr Tom' by Michelle Magorian as a supporting text. The role of women in the war will be researched followed by the Holocaust and other key events. We are hoping to study 'The Diary of Anne Frank as a second supporting text. A trip to Duxford Imperial War Museum is planned to give the children a wider experience of this time period and the events that took place
