Redwood Class 2022 - 2023

We posted our evacuee letters today!

We have been writing letters in the role of an evacuee during World War Two: expect a letter from your loved one through your door soon!

We had an amazing time on our school trip to Chatham Dockyard. We climbed aboard a real spy submarine and a World War 2 destroyer ship. We also learnt how to make rope for anchors and went inside a real air-raid shelter and experienced what it might be like for people during The Blitz.

We visited Erith Fire Station to learn all about keeping ourselves safe at home and when travelling.

Over this term, we have researched into and designed our own survival tools. Today, we created them!

Our class won a spin of the wheel on our ‘Race to Rewards’ system! We won an art/Dt lesson of our choice. We chose to make clay models and do painting. We had a fantastic time!

In Whole Class Reading today, we were reading for knowledge! We read instructions taken from a survival information book to help us tie different knots. This will help us in a survival situation!

Today for Science, we made blood! We used different ingredients to represent blood plasma, red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets. Article 28: I have the right to an education. Article 13: I have the right to find out and share information.

Today, as part as our Survivors topic, we went in the forest school to create our own shelters. We tested if our shelters could keep us safe and dry in a survival situation!

We were so lucky to have the author Jemma Hatt in to visit us today! We did a workshop with her where we came up with characters and ideas for our own adventure stories! Article 28: The right to an education. Article 17: The right to access information.

Redwood have doing aerobic exercises to keep fit! Article 31: The right to leisure, play and culture. Article 28: the right to an education.

We had an amazing time on our school trip: climbing aboard a real World War 2 destroyer ship, going inside a wartime submarine, experiencing a real WW2 air raid shelter and finding out about how rope was made for boat anchors!

We interviewed each other in role to find out what life was like for evacuees.
