This term, the children have been studying World War II in depth. We began the term experiencing a mock evacuation and then constructed a timeline of key events. During the term, the children then studied The Blitz, Evacuation, The Home Front, The Holocaust, and Anne Frank. They also made vegetable soup using only ingredients available under wartime rationing. We were lucky to have a visit from a poppy seller from the Royal British Legion who told us all about why the poppy appeal is so important to support war veterans and their families. The children rounded off their topic by making a Lest We Forget exhibit made from recycled plastic bottles to display outside the school gates in time for Remembrance Day. Finally, the children wrote monologues about the horrors of war why we should never go to war again.
