Battle of Britain


We will be using this opportunity to find out about the events that led up to and including the Battle of Britain. We will be looking at the significant events and people of the second world war.



We will be looking at the countries and armies which were involved in the Battle of Britain and how this type of warfare occurred.  We will also be studying technological advances as a result of the Battle of Britain, such as radar and night time bombing. 



Through research and investigation, we will learn to:

  • recognise that light appears to travel in straight lines

  • use the idea that light travels in straight lines to explain that objects are seen because they give out or reflect light into the eye

  • explain that we see things because light travels from light sources to our eyes or from light sources to objects and then to our eyes

  • use the idea that light travels in straight lines to explain why shadows have the same shape as the objects that cast them



We will be learning to effectively use the features of diaries to write a recount of the events of the Battle of Britain and other significant moments of WWII. This will link to our class text of ‘Goodnight Mr Tom’.

We will also be exploring persuasion techniques used in propaganda posters and the effectiveness of those skills.

In Grammar we will be focussing on punctuating parenthesis correctly; creating and compiling a range of sentence types and revising how to punctuate speech.
