Autumn Term - World War 2 -The children will develop an understanding of WW2. First, they will research, identify and analyse the causes. Then, they will learn about the Blitz and understand the impending changes for child evacuees. They will create observational drawings of enemy and ally planes used during the war. From this, the children will gain an understanding of how occupied land altered during the war. Collaboratively, they will design, create and evaluate an Anderson shelter.
We will then move into the significance of Remembrance and the D-Day landings. Finally, we will investigate the use of codes during the war and attempt to crack them.
