Our Autumn Term topic will be 'Pack Up Your Troubles!'

This term our topic is ‘Pack Up Your Troubles’ which focuses on World War II. Throughout the topic ‘Pack up your troubles’ the children will learn all about World War II. They will find out when, why and who was involved in World War II and will consider the effectiveness of different sources.  The children will develop an empathy for the life of an evacuee child and make links to the role that Shropshire played in the evacuation.  As part of the music curriculum, children will learn some songs from World War II and explore that counter melody is different to harmony.  During the second half of term, as part of their Geography, the children will study a standalone unit based on trade.  They will understand how the UK trades with other countries, the global supply chain and the importance of Fair Trade.   Finally, in DT, the children will design, make a paper template and learn how to sew a variety of stitches before making a felt phone case.  This topic links in with our English unit in the first half of the Autumn term as the children will study the book 'Star of Fear, Star of Hope'.

Useful links


Children can access the Nessy Reading and Spelling programme at home.  Using the website click on 'log in' in the top right hand corner.  The secret word is bossywrench then enter your child's first and last name and click GO.  



The children will receive a password to access Mathletics.  Tasks will be set for the children and it would be helpful if they could practise at home.  


Online SPAG and Read Theory Practise

The children have received passwords to access the SPAG and Read Theory practise questions at home.  If the children could complete SPAG and Read Theory practise regularly at home, this would really support their progress at school. The tests do not take very long and the programmes enable the tracking of their progress both at school and at home, so you can see how they are getting on.
