Topic Week

Our topic this half term has been addressing the big question - What would you have done after school one-hundred years ago?

With the centenary of the end of The Great War just weeks away, we spent some time discussing how this event would have impacted every aspect of our lives, from the food we eat to the homes in which we live.

We have also been reading the Michael Morpurgo novel 'The Butterfly Lion' which is set during WWI,  and been writing diary entries as soldiers in the trenches.

For our art and D&T focus we spent some time making kites which the characters in The Butterfly Lion also like to do.
