Topic

This term our big question is 'Why is the First World War known as 'The Great War'? We will be learning about the war that changed the world from 1914-18. We will develop our historical skills by looking at a range of sources to learn why the war started, where the soldiers fought and what conditions were like. We will look at the impact of WW1 on Worcester and the importance of the Battle of Gheluvelt. Finally, we will consider the importance of Remembrance Day. In English, we will be reading One Boy's War and War Horse to further enhance our knowledge of WW1.
