This forthcoming term, Year 4/5/6 will be studying the 'Blitz'. This project has a history focus and teaches children about the second World War including an understanding of the reasons for war, the impact on everyday lives of people including children and about significant individuals of the period. Children will also learn about the significance of the Swansea Blitz and the social and human impact of it. At the heart of this project children write narrative stories based on historical facts and develop additional skills in using flashback as a technique for telling stories. As part of this topic, we will be learning some of the dances that were popular during this period in our PE lessons. These will take place on Thursday so please remember your PE kits!
In Literacy, we will be studying William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. The class has been given a piece of research based homework on the 'Life and times of William Shakespeare'. This is to be completed by Half Term and should take the form of an A4 booklet.
A busy term awaits!
