Our big question for terms 1/2 is Why did Hitler invade Europe and how did it affect Britain? Already we are showing great enthusiasm about the topic of WW2. We will be exploring why the war started, what it was like to be an evacuee (look out for an evacuee day at school), making a dish using WW2 rations, making a poppy memorial in the playground and the Battle of Britain. What a busy two terms we have coming up!
