REQM Silver Award

Welcome back to the summer term in Class 3. Our new topic WW2 is an amazing topic and we experience history at last where there are people from that era that are still alive today! As well as finding out about how the war started, we will find out what it was like being a child during the war years with food, including sweets, rationed. Can you imagine sleeping in an Anderson shelter at the bottom of your garden, wondering if a bomb would be dropped near you during the night? Studying at a local level, we shall find out about the significance of Bletchley Park and what Hackleton and the surrounding area did to prepare for war.

Linking to DT, we are going to make sock monkeys, so choose some snazzy socks to bring into school to transform into a soft toy, remember it was all about make do and mend during the war years.

In science we will be looking very closely at flowering plants and investigating what a plant needs to grow healthily. At some point you will be planting runner bean seeds which can be transported to your own gardens later on when they get too tall for the classroom. Who will have the tallest runner bean plant?

Lots of exciting things happen within school during the summer term. As well as sports day, we have our yearly May Day celebrations with a newly appointed May Day King and Queen and the summer fayre.
