Over the last two weeks, we have been studying the history part of our topic thinking about World War Two. Before we began our learning about World War Two, we looked at the other history topics that have been studied in Key Stage 2. Then, the children placed these periods on a timeline; they enjoyed thinking about the order of these periods of history. To begin our learning, the children have considered the causes of the war and were surprised to learn that there were several different causes not just Hitler and Germany. After this, the children learnt about how World War Two affected society. Comparing the changes in men’s and women’s lives, the children learnt about conscription for the men and the impact this also had on women. The children produced their own comic strips about how the role of women changed with some lovely results.
