Welcome to Wanstead!
Wanstead station was built in the 1930s but was not opened owing to the outbreak of World War II. During the War it was used to make aircraft parts. 2000 people worked in the tunnels which had their own railway, canteen and rest areas.

Hello, I’m Mrs De Bruyn and I am so excited to be Wanstead’s class teacher this year. I cannot wait to start the learning journey with everybody. I have a passion for English and love books of any sort.
My favourite thing to do is spend time with my family and travel. I have been very fortunate to live and work in different countries and love learning about different cultures and customs.
I am looking forward to unlocking all of the children’s passions and helping them to reach their best potential.
In math’s this half term we will be exploring place value which focuses on children’s ability to read and understand numbers to 100. They will use their growing understanding of place value to help them sort, compare and order numbers. The children will revise their understanding of different representations of numbers and also meet other representations for the first time.
This project teaches children about the basic needs of humans for survival, including the importance of exercise, nutrition and good hygiene. They learn how human offspring grow and change over time into adulthood.
In the wider curriculum we are focusing on 'Movers and Shakers' in history where will learn about different significant people who have shaped our lives. We will also be learning how to use a map and compass in geography. In DT, we will be experimenting with basic sewing techniques and begin to look at some simple recipes for baking. In Art, the children will be exploring basic colour theory by studying the colour wheel and colour mixing. It includes an exploration of primary and secondary colours and how artists use colour in their artwork.
