We will discover the influence that the wider British Empire had both on the initial outbreak of war, during the two conflicts and in the post-war period.
Welcome to Year 5 and Year 6
Wheal Luna is home to our eldest children in Years 5 and 6. It is staffed by class teacher Mr. Hurrell and assisted by Ms. Vaughan and Mrs Fran Parker-Cock.
We believe in working hard with enthusiasm and joy to ensure our children are ready for their journey into secondary education and life beyond. We always encourage having fun and looking after each other - we are a team!
What some of our children say about our class...
"Luna is amazing, our teachers are hard working and kind. They help us in our learning and make sure we are on the right track. Everyone is friendly and it is like one big family." From Ethan
"Teachers always help us if we struggle. They understand if we are finding things tricky. The teachers are always cracking cheesy jokes, it is an amazing class. I love it!" From Amelia
Our topic for this term is 'Fallen Fields'. This project will focus our learning on the First and Second World Wars. We will explore the events that led to the outbreak of both wars, the experiences of warfare on the battlefields of Europe and what life was like on the home front, comparing our local area to other parts of the UK.
