English Lesson

L.O - To empathise with characters.

 

Today, you will be finding out about children’s experiences of evacuation.  Most are from a first person perspective. 

 

Begin by watching the video from the Imperial War Museum, this has footage of evacuation/evacuees and a clear background of the process and what it would have been like.  Then read the first person accounts on the PDF.

 

A lot of the accounts talk about the excitement of travelling to the countryside for the first time, seeing animals, fresher air etc.  

 

Activity: Write a diary from the perspective of an evacuee.  You could include the journey away from parents, being taken to their ‘foster’ parents, being in the county and comparing it to the smog and grime of the city.   Include emotions and experiences they have had.  Use the written accounts you have read as inspiration!

For maths today, you will be revising square and cube numbers. This is to help you with understanding the topic Volume.

PSHE

 

For PSHE this week, we are going to continue looking at 'Mental Health' It is important that we look after our physical and mental health, especially during such difficult times. This week's focus is about 'Recapping our learning'. Using the health and well being tab which I have linked below, trial some of the activities. This is especially useful to aid your sleeping, getting back into a routine and any back to school anxieties.
