Welcome to Ms Pateman's class!
In history, we will be researching how World War Two started and finding out about some key moments such as The Battle of Britain, the Blitz and the evacuation of children from cities. We will look at how everyday life was changed by the war with rationing, 'grow your own' and 'make do and mend'.
This topic lends itself to many DT and science investigations: we will be testing materials and finding out about what makes a strong structure so we can build our own mini air raid shelters and we will use our knowledge of forces and air resistance to carry out parachute investigations. In PSHME we will be looking at the role of UNICEF and children's rights that were written after World War Two.
All writing will come from work across the topic: adventurous stories involving air raids, newspaper reports about the evacuation and poetry which conveys the feelings of children from that time.
