What do you predict will happen to Rose Blanche?
Although our first week back has been a short one, we have already encountered much discussion and learning about our History topic - World War Two. The children are really enjoying the texts we are reading, exploring various issues and a lot of great vocabulary is being explored in relation to this. Books such as 'Rose Blanche' by Roberto Innocenti and 'Friend or Foe' by Michael Morpurgo are just two of the stories we are reading currently. The children have been finding out why and when World War Two broke out and the countries involved. In Maths, we are continuing learning about Percentages, building on Year 5 work. Discussions about the January sales and discounts have proved interesting as the children realise the real life purpose behind learning about percentages. In Art, we have begun to find out about World War Two propaganda posters, their purpose and style. The children will be designing their own over the next few weeks, with the drawing of faces being the specific skill they will practise.
