Year 5/6 Miss Gobel and Mr Marchant

Welcome to Miss Gobel and Mr Marchant’s Class

Our topic for summer term 1 is ‘A Child’s War’.

During our history lessons, we will be learning about world war two (WWII) in particular its impact on Teignmouth and how it affected children. In literacy, we will be reading ‘Friend or Foe’ by Michael Morpurgo and we will write letters ‘home’ from the point of view of an evacuee. We will also write a short story linked to WWII.

During geography lessons, we will locate the main countries involved in WWII on a world map and use a map of the UK to locate some of the cities badly affected by the bombing raids. We will also explore why Teignmouth was targeted by bombers during the war.

In DT, we will looking at the dig for victory campaign and cooking with WWII rations. Our music topic is ‘Dancing in the street’ and in computing we will be exploring databases.
