This autumn term, year 6 are delving into the exciting history of both World War One and World War Two. So far, we have discovered why WW1 started through drama and investigation. We have learnt about life in the trenches and written letters from the perspective of soldiers and nurses on the front line. We are using our inquiry skills to unpick the decisions of important people during both wars and looking at how WW2 affected people as well as the impact of crucial events had on aspects of war such as society, morale and progress. We are learning to empathise with people from the past and understand people’s thoughts, feelings and decisions using primary and secondary sources. We are looking forward to a trip to the Holocaust Museum as well as a DT week based on war time food.
