Swallows Class Blog
At the beginning of this new school year, we are kicking straight off with our new topic: World War 1. (One of my favourite topics to teach). At home, I thoroughly enjoy reading about this important and tragic historical event, and I hope the children learn a lot from what I have found out. I am also finding out lots from the children, so we are all learning together!
This week, we have been learning to round numbers up to ten million. In English, we have been writing lots of descriptions of a character in our story, Private Peaceful. In our Topic work, we have been learning about bi-planes, and even got to make our own!
This week, we have been learning about marine camouflage which was developed in the Great War. It's called "Dazzle" camouflage, and was used to confuse the enemy U-boats.
