Our history topic this term is World War II. It will focus on the Battle of Britain, evacuation and the Blitz. We have also planned a World War II evacuation experience with a steam train ride – letters coming soon.
In science, we will learn all about the circulatory system and healthy living. We have a trip to visit Skillzone planned for 21st September, to learn all about personal safety.
Our class novel this term is Letters from the Lighthouse by Emma Carroll:
We weren’t supposed to be going to the pictures that night. We weren’t even meant to be outside, not in a blackout, and definitely not when German bombs had been falling on London all month like pennies from a jar.
After months of bombing raids in London, twelve-year-old Olive Bradshaw and her little brother Cliff are evacuated to the Devon coast. The only person with two spare beds is Mr Ephraim, the local lighthouse keeper. But he’s not used to company and he certainly doesn’t want any evacuees.
Desperate to be helpful, Olive becomes his post-girl, carrying secret messages (as she likes to think of the letters) to the villagers. But Olive has a secret of her own. Her older sister Sukie went missing in an air raid, and she’s desperate to discover what happened to her. Then she finds a strange coded note – a note that changes everything and which seems to link Sukie to Devon, and to something dark and impossibly dangerous.
