Autumn Term

Area of Study: 

During the autumn term, our topic will be: Conflict. We will commence by looking at the origins, causes and consequences of WW1 and WW2, moving on to looking at how this conflict impacted upon the world at large and what its legacies proved to be and their lasting impact. Through the lens of Sheffield itself, we will consider what impact these wars had on our local area. We will also study (from different viewpoints) how propaganda was used to influence and persuade whilst learning about the experience of Walter Tull and the impact of the Windrush generation on Britain. 

The Y6 children will also visit the Imperial War Museum in Manchester to further develop their understanding of different conflicts and their lasting impact.
