6th Class Blog
Hope you’re all going to tune into The School Hub this week!
This week our theme is World War One, as there is so much to study in this area we will spread it over two weeks. Keep up the great work, I know I keep repeating the fact that any hard work you put in now is in preparation for first year but it’s true! As always try your best.
In the third lesson of our Transition Programme we are looking at homework, equipment and rules. (All the fun stuff!) There’s a lot to take in and it’s completely normal to feel a little nervous about these topics, remember if you do have any worries talking to your parents or an older brother or sister can often put your mind at ease. Both the presentation and activity sheet are attached below. If you can’t print out the activities you can answer them in your copy.
Perhaps take the first three episodes this week – each episode is about 15mins long. Listening to the audio book is also a really great example of how to read with expression.
How WWI started:
The Assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand:
The Western and Eastern fronts in WWI:
The horror of the trenches in WWI
The use of U-boats in WWI

Have a good week,
Other suggested activities:
I understand some of the English activities above are a little challenging. Below are some alternative activities based on WWI that you could choose instead. Remember we all work at our own pace, all I ask is that you try your best!
