Autumn 2 - A Child's War

In this topic, we teach children about the cause and effects of the Second World War; significant events and people; and develop their empathy for what it was like to be a child at the time.

Our key text, which our writing is based on, is The Amazing Story of Adolphus Tips by Michael Morpurgo.

At Fernhurst, Years 5 and 6 do joint topics which will run over a two-year cycle to ensure that children do not repeat a certain topic. This will be a great way to plan as a team and enable us to provide learning for the children which is more exciting than ever!
