The Great Wars

Spring Term 2019
This term we will be focusing on the two world wars of the 20th century.

We'll start by researching World War 1. Finding out what sparked the initial conflict and who Britian and our allies were fighting on the battlefields. Furhtermore, we will have an in-depth look at how horses were used in World War 1 by studying the book 'War Horse'. We'll use clips and dramatic scenes to hook the children in.

The second half of the topic we will focus on World War 2. How did it start? Who were our allies/enemies? What was life like in England? What happened to the children? We'll discuss what propoganda is. Furthermore, we will focus on the book 'Letters from a Lighthouse' and 'Anne Frank's Diary'.
