Summer 1 

Spring - World War 2

Over the last 2 half terms, we have delved deeper into our topic of WW2 and concluded our learning. We learnt about different people linked to WW2 including Vera Lynn, Anne Frank, Alan Turing and Adolf Hitler. We found out about Anderson shelters and how WW2 ended by completing some work on VE day. In art, we created Blitz landscapes focusing on the skill of blending paint.


In Science, we have been learning all about life cycles of plants and animals including birds, reptiles, mammals and amphibians. We have also looked at the life of David Attenborough and used our research to create a fact file all about his life.
