During Summer 1 we will be learning all about the Battle of Britain,

For our WOW day we have been identifying the life of a soldier during the battle compared to a soldier now. We had a visit from a current solder in the British army whom came into class to answer questions from the children and to also explain what life is like in the army now. We then compared the differences and similarities.  

During Spring 2, we have been learning all about the USA. We have looked at all of the states in America, comparing facts found out about each state. We have also been looking at why the president is so important, we looked at the role of the president, the different presidents and the responsibilities they have. Finally we looked at the Art work of Andy Warhol. 

We have enjoyed investigating this country and have found out lots of new things. 

We have been learning all about the Ancient Greeks in Year 5. As part of our topic, we will be learning all about the life of the Greeks. To get us started we enjoyed having a WOW day in which seen us transform into Greeks. We even got to try some traditional Greek food. 

Throughout the rest of the topic, we will be looking more closely at the life the Greek used to live.
