Term 3 - Battles, Bombs and Bullets


Welcome back to Term 3! This term we are exploring different key areas of WW2 each week. 

Kicking off the term, we have spent week 1 looking at the Treaty of Versailles and the appeasment that lead to the outbreak of war. This week was our week to focus on our British values and to understand how people must have felt at that time in British history.

Here is what's to come this term...

*Week 2: Equality.

In this week, we will touch on the horrors of the Holocaust, creating artwork for Holocaust memorial day. We will be focusing on factors that lead to prejudice and discrimination and thinking about how this applies to us as 21st Century citizens. 

*Week3: The Blitz. 

Our class text this term is Machiene Gunners. This week we will be exploring life on the home front by listening to interviews, comparing aircraft and learning what it was like during the lightning war. 

*Week 4: Children in the war. 

As we move through our learning, this week will focus on children in the War, evacuation and life for those who remained at home. 

*Week 5: Science

Our science week will be looking at the microbes that helped Britain to win WW2 when it came to food!

*Week 6: Rationing. 

Ensure that your food tasting permission slips have been returned for this week! We will be planning our own menus and exploring what rationing really meant.
