Does history repeat itself?
Throughout this REAL Project, pupils will explore the chronology of WW2 and they will recognise and discuss the causes and consequences of World War Two. They will also learn about the events of The Blitz and the impact it all had on Liverpool.
They will consider if and when history repeats itself and how we can care for our common home – the earth.
They will look at how charities such a CAFOD support our common home and how we can Live Simply.
The books we will read to inspire us are:
The Blitz Bus – Glen Blackwell
Time Train tot eh Blitz – Sophie McKenzie
King Kong – Anthony Browne
Mini Outcome 1: Research Earth Day 2022 and share ways that we can ‘INVEST IN OUR PLANET’
Mini Outcome 2: To interview a CAFOD volunteer about how we can make a difference in our world and its future.
Mini Outcome 3: To explore how small acts of love make big things happen and plan our Live Simply Award.
To submit our Live Simply Award plan to CAFOD.

Year Group Information
Pupils can wear their school PE kit every Monday.
Reading records (blue book) and home reading books must be in school every day. Please help us by writing in the blue home reading record book when you read with your child. This helps us as we can move your child onto the new book more quickly. Remember to read 5 times at home to get a stamp.
Homework is set on Seesaw on a Monday and is expected to be completed by the following Monday. Staff will mark the children’s work online and send it back for the pupils to see. Children will be given 2 pieces of homework on Seesaw per week – Maths and Grammar.
Pupils have received their own individual QR Code/Text Code to log in to Seesaw on a laptop or tablet at home. Smart phones can also be used to access the work; however, pupils may struggle to type on such a small screen so we recommend handwritten answers on paper which can then be photographed and uploaded as that child’s piece of work.
Pupils are also expected and will be monitored online by class teachers that they complete the following activities each week:
Reading Plus –.6 tasks.
Maths Shed – regular practice.
Spelling Shed – regular practice.
Times Table Rockstars – regular practice.
