Summer Term - 2023

This term our enquiry is: How we can defend our Island?

We will be exploring this question by looking at what happened to Britain in WW2.


We had a great time in our first LOTC session of the term. We received a letter from Colonel Custard, who was having trouble sleeping on the frontline as he was missing his teddy bear. We used our mapping skills to 'drop' the bear and then camouflaged it, so that the colonel could find it.




We used our knowledge of pulleys (from Science) to complete our Earth Day challenge. To create a system to help farmers in Nepal transport their tomatoes down the mountain to market.


On Thursday April 20th, 5L visited the Norfolk Records Office to start our new enquiry about WW2.  We enjoyed finding out about what had happened during the war in our local area. Investigating historical artefacts and working out where to place evacuees who arrived in a town in Norfolk.
