As a school we have introduced a new and incredibly exciting curriculum called Cornerstones.

 

Our topic this half term will be 'A Child's War' which is based upon WWII. 

 

Below is a parent and careers' letter which details which subjects we will be covering and a fun facts sheet about the topic. I will also be sending home a knowledge organiser with lots of information about the topic for you to read with your children.
