This term we have enjoyed learning about WW2. The class have had their usual project menu with lots activity ideas which they can continue to work on. We've also included a Science activity where the children had a Scientist/Inventor that they should research. I've included these below.
Western Approaches HQ are offering a series of WW2 history lessons aimed at primary children. For six weeks, they will launch a new film every week which you can access by the link below. All lessons are free and include worksheets that give prompts for further research which the children can send back to them.
