Macaws - Year 5 2019 - 2020
Autumn Term 2019
Curriculum Learning - Autumn 1
Welcome to Macaws class. I hope you have had a lovely Summer break and are ready for the enriching term ahead.
Our history topic for this half term will focus on The Great War. We will discuss "Who fought for the allies in the Great War?" and the role of Muslims and Sikh allied soldiers.
However, we will start this half term by looking at the book "FArTHER" by Grahame Baker-Smith.
"A young boy, bewitched by his father's unrelenting passion to fly; a desperate craving that absorbs his every waking minute, finds himself entranced by the dream. When his father goes to war and does not return it seems the spell is broken.
Much later, the boy, now a young man finds himself drawn once more to his father's drawings and failed experiments. Finally able to make his father's dream a reality, he flies. Will his own son be visited by this unrelenting passion?"
The children will plan and write a setting description & letters. We'll also write a free verse poem, about the sound of war, inspired by this book.
It is anticipated that the children will spend one half term studying The Great War.
To keep up to date with what is happening in our class, make sure you regularly check our school's Twitter feed.
I look forward to seeing you at the upcoming Meet the Teacher evening on Wednesday 4th September 2019 (3.30pm – 4pm). It is vitally important that this session is attended as homework, PE kit expectations, the curriculum and school routines will be detailed.
Should you have any queries, please feel free to contact me using the email address at the top of the page or speak to me in person at the end of the school day.
It's going to be an exciting year at Cuddington Primary School!
