This term we delve deeper into our world at war topic by exploring a host of new themes ranging from exciting new literacy topics such as ‘Animals at War’ and enthralling texts including Michael Morpurgo’s ‘Friend or Foe.’ We aim to provide the children with authentic historical experiences: a trip to the Imperial War Museum: a celebratory party for VE day and many more fantastic learning opportunities! Having been immersed within the historical context, the children are then given the chance to display their creative flare by producing their very own Anderson shelters, mono-prints and war painting transcriptions. In addition, we have a varied homework menu and the option for the children to produce work based on whatever direction their learning takes them.
