Class 4 Autumn term Review- WWI & WWII
I have to say, I have really enjoyed the Autumn term...
We have been very pleased with the children's maturity to embrace this topic. The children have learnt about a range of events that had shocked the World during 1914 to 1945 such as: life on the front line in World War 1 and the appalling conditions they fought in, life as an evacuee in WW2, the holocaust and much more. They have learnt about the importance of remembrance and produced some stunning research homework to remember family members who were involved in both wars.
Check out Class 4's amazing work they have produced so far. From creating posters based on their family involvement in WW1 and WW2, making fabulous art work, sharing artifacts and writing stories based on scenes from War Horse. More to follow soon...
