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. .
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.
