Topic – Autumn Term 2
This term, we move onto another area of history in our new topic called ‘A Child’s War’.
A siren sounds, a building crumbles, a Spitfire zooms overhead. Take cover. It’s 1939 and Britain is at war. Deep down in the Anderson shelter, learn why nations are fighting and why child evacuees must make the long journey from their homes and families into unknown territory. Read the diary of Anne Frank, written whilst hiding from the terrifying stormtroopers in a secret annexe, and try to empathise with her hopes and fears. Make do and mend. Cook up a family meal from meagre rations. Delve deep into a bygone era, when loose lips sunk ships. And, as peace is declared, let’s get ready to celebrate. Mr Churchill says ‘It’s an unconditional surrender.’

Topic – Autumn Term 1
This term our topic is called ‘Fallen Fields.’
The Sun sets on the battlefields of France and a solitary bugle sounds the Last Post.
Known as ‘the war to end all wars’ the First World War was a conflict that had a devastating effect on millions of people across the world.
What started this global tragedy? What was life like for families on the home front as they waited for news of loved ones who were ‘missing in action’? How did the soldiers endure the terrible conditions in the trenches? How was a fragile peace finally achieved?
We will always remember the fallen.
