World War I and II

This term we are historians. Our topic is 'World Wars', We will be following enquiry led learning and generating our own intriguing questions, we hope to equip ourselves with the knowledge and skills to generate a full understanding and appreciation for this vastly involved topic.

Drawing all of our learning together, our very own 'historical investigation' is sure to thrill and intrigue you all as it includes two very exciting trips.

We will look at aspects of war including propaganda, Anderson shelters and what life was like as an evacuee.
