It's nearly the end of the Summer Term 2015 and it's goodbye to our latest topic, We'll Meet Again.
This topic focused on World War II - the years 1939 to 1945 - and, in particular, the war in Europe.
In class, we will be exploring many of the themes and issues of the period through stories set in the period and started with the classic Goodnight Mr Tom.
We launched with a World War II dressing up day on 23rd April - see below for pictures.
Later, in June we went on the Children at War residential - happy memories!
