Our new topic is 'A Child's War'

We will be empathising with wartime children and discovering what it was like to be evacuated to an unknown place with unknown adults looking after them. Children will learn about key moments in World War 2, identifying which nations were involved and how their roles differed. Our art will be inspired from the covers of our class novel 'The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas' and DT will look at the 'make do and mend' mentality of the era. As the weather warms up we will do a bit of digging for victory.



Our PE days are Tuesday and Thursday but please bring clean PE kit in on Monday each week.
