Newspaper Reports and Fiction Writing

Rose Blanche was the name of a group of young German citizens who, at their peril, protested against the war. Like them, Rose observes all the changes going on around her which others choose to ignore. She watches as the streets of her small German town fill with soldiers. One day she sees a little boy escaping from the back of a truck, only to be captured by the mayor and shoved back into it. Rose follows the truck to a desolate place out of town, where she discovers many other children, staring hungrily from behind an electric barbed wire fence. She starts bringing the children food, instinctively sensing the need for secrecy, even with her mother. Until the tide of the war turns and soldiers in different uniforms stream in from the East, and Rose and the imprisoned children disappear for ever . . .

Properties of Materials 

The children will be taught to:

-compare and group together everyday materials on the basis of their properties, including their hardness, solubility, transparency, conductivity (electrical and thermal), and response to magnets

-know that some materials will dissolve in liquid to form a solution, and describe how to recover a substance from a solution

-use knowledge of solids, liquids and gases to decide how mixtures might be separated, including through filtering, sieving and evaporating

-give reasons, based on evidence from comparative and fair tests, for the particular uses of everyday materials, including metals, wood and plastic

-demonstrate that dissolving, mixing and changes of state are reversible changes

-explain that some changes result in the formation of new materials, and that this kind of change is not usually reversible, including changes associated with burning and the action of acid on bicarbonate of soda.
