PE days are on a Monday and Wednesday, please ensure your child has their kit in school on these days. Please ensure that their kits are appropriate for indoor and outdoor PE. We also take part in the Daily Mile, so the children need their trainers on a daily basis.

We will be looking into the events leading up to and during World War 2, with a focus on chronology.
We will also be looking at: the countries that were involved, the roles of men and women, rationing, significant battles and the turning point.
