During the Spring term, Year 5 will be learning all about the World Wars. This is a fantastic topic with lots of interesting things to find out about. This links with our literacy unit all about Kensuke's Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo. We will be completing this exciting text as part of our Guided Reading sessions in the summer term.
As part of our topic, we will be visiting Stockport Air Raid Shelters for a day of role play. We enjoyed being evacuees and seeing what it might have felt like for children at the time. We felt lucky to see some great artefacts and visit the air raid shelters themselves. This really brought the topic alive for all of us.

Here is some other work we have completed:
