Volunteers are requested for this trip, so please let Miss Johnson or Miss Atac know if you are able to attend the museum with us on this date.  Please see the following trip letter for more details. 

 

Topic - This term we will be looking at World War II which follows on from the World War I topic that the pupils studied in Year 5. We will be thinking about how the previous world war contributed towards the second as well as learn about pivotal battles and developments that occurred during this time. We will also study the impact the war had both on the home front and in the battlefield with a focus on the inventions that were created in this period. .

 

School journey

Parents should be aware that we have decided to move this to early in 2018. The trip will still be going ahead! Further information about the dates of the trip as well as the cost will be made available as soon as we have confirmation.
