A Child's War

A Child's War


Our topic for all of Spring term will be A Child's War. This focuses on WWII. We will look at the reasons for the outbreak of war leading through to the end of the war. We will look at who the leaders were of the countries involved, how they influenced the start and events of the war and what happened to them during the war. We will examine what the war was like for different groups including children evacuees, soldiers, women and those persecuted during this time, learning about the Holocaust. We will finally look at life after the war and how everything didn't just return to normal including the prolonged years of rationing. 


We will be having our launch day on Friday 17th where the children can come in evacuee clothing. We will upload photos from this enjoyable day as soon as we can!
