The world is always open, waiting to be discovered...
Welcome to the
This term we are going to explore events beyond our living memory
First, we are going to find out about who Guy Fawkes was and tell the story of the Gunpowder Plot. We will find out about the events in the plot and act out some of the different events. Then we will focus on why we celebrate Bonfire night and think of our own experiences of Bonfire night and think about how we can stay safe. Finally, we will make Bonfire night inspired artworks.
After we have learnt about Gunpowder Plot, we will then focus the rest of the term learning about Remembrance day and World War I. First, we will reflect on our own memories as a class and understand the meaning of symbols, in particular the Remembrance Day poppy. We will then explore and discover the reasons behind Remembrance Day and how the event is marked around the world. We will also look into the different poppies around the world. Then we will create our own poppy wreaths and write poems about remembrance. Next we will learn about timelines, in particular looking at the timeline of the first world war. We will learn more about life in the trenches, women in wartime, communication and rationing.
A few reminders for parents:
