Autumn Term 2

In the trenches


This half term, we will be focusing our work around World War 1.  There will be many exciting opportunities to develop a deep understanding of life in Britain around the time of the Great War. We will be writing letters home to loved ones, reading poems written by soldiers and experience what it was like to wear the uniforms from the British Army.


See below for some examples of the amazing work we were able to complete as a result of our learning


As part of our learning, Tempus Fugit Educational Theatre group visited our school. The children were engaged with the performance centred around life as a soldier during World War One.

As part of our annual, charitable efforts, we worked with the Royal British Legion to sell poppies throughout the school to raise money to help the families of injured soldiers.

As part of our learning in Literacy and History, we learned about WW1 to coincide with Armistice Day in November. We also developed our understanding of imagery through water colour and reading poems written during WW1. We brought everything we learned about the war into a fluid account through a war journal. Take a look at some of the children's fabulous work below.

Other work we completed this half term


In Science, we have been carrying out investigations to embed inquiry skills. We planned our own fair test experiments. We also applied the language of comparison when recording our findings.
