Through cross curricular and inquiry based approaches to our learning:

The children will be exploring the history of  World War 2. The children will explore how the war began and ended, as well as the countries and world leaders involved. We will discover what the Blitz was and its impact on Britain. The children will reflect on what it was like for those who were evacuated and explore how the system worked.

We will look at the main initiatives and tactics including rationing, make do and mend and dig for victory.


The children will consider the experiences of different groups during the war through their study of Anne Frank and why she is remembered.

We will explore the effects of war on the lives of every day  people and reflect on their experiences .


We will also be exploring aspects of the topic through our English work.



Each term we produce a Curriculum Map that details what the children will learn. 
The Curriculum Maps are designed to give as much information as possible

about what the children will be learning at school each 

term so that they can be supported at home.

We are currently exploring ways of revising our homework policy. Currently the children will be sent home a weekly maths and English task. This will be sent out on Tuesday to be returned the following Monday.


Please continue to practise your times tables and read regularly (every day if possible). Don't forget you can also access and practise your maths skills on Doodle maths and you could also do some research in preparation for your talk.
