Pine (Yr 5)

Reading:

We are just finishing our class read 'friend or foe' which is about an evacuee in WWII. Evacuated from London, David and Tucky feel like the war is a long way away from their new life in the countryside. Then one night the skyline of the moor is lit up with gun flashes, and the distant crump of bombing miles away brings the war back to them and shatters their new-found peace. Our class will them begin to read Carries War which is about an evacuee during WWII sent to live in Wales until the end of term. 

Writing: 

We have just finished a unit on persuasive writing and changing the perspective of who the story is told by. This has involved re telling stories from another point of view, for example Little Red Riding where the story was re told from the point of view of the wolf. We are now working on biography and have been researching Nicholas Winton and Winston Churchill. We will then be moving onto writing with emotion.

In topic Pine class has been learning about WWII.

We have moved onto rationing, where children wrote their own recipes and linking to maths worked out how much the food would have cost with their ration books.
