Year 6

Britain at War

In the Britain at War project, your child will learn about the main causes of the First World War and which countries played a major part. They will investigate why so many men volunteered to fight and also sequence the events at the start of the war. The children will then use various sources of evidence to learn about life in the trenches and the consequences of new weaponry. Year 6 will learn to evaluate the impact that the wars had on everyday life and also discover the events that led to the Allied Powers’ victory and the consequences of the Treaty of Versailles.

 

The pupils of Year 6 will also learn about the causes and main events of the Second World War and will research how Britain prepared itself for war and the war’s impact on civilian life. We will be learning about the Battle of Britain and how it proved to be a key turning point for the Allied Powers and will also hear about Anne Frank and discover what her story tells us about the treatment of Jewish people by the Nazi Party.

 

The children will find out about the consequences of the end of the Second World War and investigate the legacy of the wars in Britain. Focusing on closer to home, they will research the life of a local First World War hero who sacrificed their life fighting for Britain and investigate the legacy of these global conflicts in the post-war period.

 

As a year group, will be looking into the role of the different nationalities that were represented during the war and encouraging children to investigate the reasons why certain nations joined the conflicts. Alongside this, we will be researching roles of men and women during both wars and dispel stereotypes children might have about male and female responsibilities.
