It has been super to have our lovely children back in Cedar Class after a bit of a funny end to last year, we are bright eyed, bushy tailed and enjoying getting stuck in to this term's topic - World at War.
From baking potato cakes, to 'make do and mend' projects, like darning our socks and embellishing our old clothes, there is lots of fun learning to be done before we break up for Christmas! Alongside the serious history stuff - like considering where sources of information come from and what legacy the past has left us today, we will also be enjoying a bit of role play in real army hats...we can't wait to see what an invasion looks like Cedar Class style!
In English we will be reading The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman which will link in to our study later in the year of other wild children, like Mowgli in the Jungle Book and The Savage by David Almond. We will also find out about the poet Michael Rosen's Jewish family during World War Two and have some fun reading his poems.
