World War 2
Our History topic and English work this half term is all about World War 2. We will be finding out how and why the war began as well as thinking about how the nation helped, especially if they were not on the front line.
We will use empathy to think about what it might have been like for a child to be evacuated.
We will be watching "Good night Mr Tom" to inspire our writing.
Our new guided reading book is
Scarper Jack and the Bloodstained Room
by Christopher Russell
'I heard a murder being planned.'
Scarper Jack is a chimney-sweep's boy and he's actually in a chimney when he hears two voices planning a murder. He knows where and when it's going to happen – but there's no way he can stop it.
With the help of two unexpected friends – a posh boy and a sewer rat of a girl – he sets out to solve the mystery and track down the murderer.
Only to find that it can be dangerous to know
too much . . .
