Happy Children, Successful Learners, Confident Individuals

What will we be getting up to?

World War 2 and the Syrian Civil War.

In the summer term, we will be learning about world issues and how we can become global citizens. The focus will be on the children understanding what is happening in current news and comparing to what we learnt about the Second World War 2. This will be based on the current Civilian War in Syria. 

The children will learn about Syrian Civil War- how it started and why it is happening. We will then look at the current refugee crisis and link this is the evacuation of children in WW2. The children will be planning their own fundraising events- and the money raised will be used to create shoe boxes that will sent to Syria. 


In English we will be looking at poetry, and writing and performing poetry linked to emotion and imagery. This will be based around our learning about the War.

We will also be writing newspaper articles about our charity events and the money that we raised.
