Oak Class

Oak Class is a class of 25  Year 5 and 6 children, taught by Miss Wooff and Mrs Unsworth. Our Teaching assistants this year will be Miss Woodburn and Mrs Swindlehurst.

This term in Oak Class our topic will be:

‘World War II’.

We will focus our learning on the question:

How did WWII impact Britain, Europe and the rest of the world?

Throughout this topic, we will focus on many events of World War II and how these events had an impact on people living at the time. In History, we will be learning all about how WW2 started, Evacuation, The Home Front,
Propaganda, The Holocaust, The Battle of Britain and much more. In Geography, we will compare maps and understand how Europe and the rest of the World changed over time. In Art, we will be exploring shape when drawing using a variety of mediums and we will use colour when creating art work based on the Blitz.

In RE, we will be focusing on ‘Life as a Journey’ and the question: Is every person’s journey the same? We will explore the idea that life is a journey and will understand what it means to make that journey as a Christian. We will also begin to understand the concept of undertaking a religious pilgrimage by comparing journeys made by other faiths.
