What sacrifices does a person have to make in order to be a 'history maker'?

Our Autumn term project focus is history. During our daily project lessons, we will be researching people who have made history by doing something extraordinary. This could be changing our knowledge of the world we live in, helping other people who live on our planet, protecting the world we live in by campaigning for change or doing something that no-one has ever done before. We will find out what these people had to do to become a 'history maker' and reflect on what we could learn from these people in order to be better ourselves. We have learnt about such people as Jacques Cousteau, Rosa Parks, David Attenborough, Greta Thunberg, Emma Raducanu, Neil Armstrong, Katharine Johnson, Marcus Rashford, Anne Frank and Mary Anning, along with many others the children have read about at home. Update (5/10/21): we have now researched 20 different history makers and will be studying these significant people in more detail over the next 6 to 8 weeks. 


In Maths lessons, we are learning about Place Value. The last 2/3 weeks have been spent partitioning any two-digit number into different combinations of tens and ones, explaining their thinking verbally, in pictures or using apparatus. Below are some pictures of some of the work we have been doing in class. 


PE DAY: Monday (outside - throwing and catching) and Friday (inside - gymnastics)

HOMEWORK: Daily reading (more to follow in stages)

READING BOOKS: Please hand in your child's reading book bags or folders on Wednesday with the reading record inside. We will send these back home on Friday with new books in. 


Alongside the many books which we have read about History Makers, we are studying the picture The Crow's Tale (an animal fable). The children have discussed the fable and the structure which we have used to practise writing paragraphs split into a minimum of three setences. If you wish to read the story with your children at home, please use the scanned book below.
