In this topic, we learnt about the causes of WWII. In geography, we used maps to identify and locate the key countries involved. We also investigated what life was like for children during the war during The Blitz and wrote evacuation diaries.

Frozen Kingdom:

In this topic, we identified similarities and differences between the Arctic and Antarctic. Additionally, we also researched what the conditions were like aboard the ‘unsinkable’ Titanic, understanding how the accommodation differed for rich and poor. We also carried out an investigation, where we observed how ice sits in water and changes over time (depending on conditions).

Assessment for learning is integral at The Meadows Primary School and drives the next steps in learning, by flagging up gaps and informing what the teachers need to plan for in terms of individuals, groups and whole class learning. As a result some objectives may be modified, added or omitted depending on the needs of the pupils.
