Unicorn

WW2

Our topic for the first half of the spring term will be A Child at War and will focus on life for children during the Second World War, we will not be going into the Holocaust or the politics of the war. We will look at Evacuees, rationing, the food they ate, making war time recipes and the London Blitz.

 

General Reminders…

  • The children will be doing PE on Mondays (weather depending) and Thursdays. Please ensure your child has their PE kit in school and that all items are clearly labelled. We encourage children to practice getting dressed at home to help them get changed quickly in school!
  • The children can bring their own water bottle to keep in class which they can access throughout the day and they will change their water regularly. Please make sure your child’s name is written clearly on their water bottle.

Fundraising

 

As you may be aware, at the Christmas Fair Unicorn class sold the lovely things they had made to raise money for a luxury Christmas Party. We managed to raise £80, a great achievement I think you will agree, the money was spent on the Unicorn class Christmas Party.

 

Raising money as a class helps us have a little pot of money for treats, such as an ice-cream on a school trip. The biggest expenditure are the Christmas and end of year parties. Therefore we are going to try to do little things throughout the year instead of one big event.

 

I thought we could start with maybe an old book and toy sale at the end of January, so if you have any old children’s books or adult books that you wouldn’t mind selling can you please bring them in.

 

Any ideas for the February and March fundraiser would be greatly received.

 

 

Radio broadcasts

We have made radio broadcasts from the point of view of an evacuee from WW2. They planned what they wanted to say first after listening to an authentic broadcast from 1939. Then used the ipads to make their recordings. I'm sure you will agree they did a great job.
