Phase 3

2018/19

Autumn Term 2018

Throughout the topic the children will experience a chronological journey through the war years: we start with the outbreak of war in September 1939 and understand the reason for declaring war and the countries involved; we discuss the Nazi party and how they came to power in Germany; we look at the war effort in Britain and the impact on its civilians including rationing, air raids, bombing and evacuation; we will celebrate the victory in Europe in the style of a street party.


Our trip will be to the Imperial War Museum Duxford coupled with a visit from living historians who will bring the topic to life for the children. As well as this we will be creating regular experiences within school to support their learning.
