War and Peace

This term, we will be learning about war, focusing predominantly on World War Two. We will be asking ourselves BIG QUESTIONS such as 'Is it right to fight?', 'What is a refugee?' and 'Is it possible to achieve world peace?'. To support us in our learning, we will be reading some fantastic books starting with 'Letters from the lighthouse' by Emma Carroll. Click the picture to find a masterclass led by Emma Carroll herself!

Walter Tull 1888-1918

As part of Black History Month and our topic 'War and Peace', we have been learning about Walter Tull. Walter was one of the first black football players in the league AND became the first black man to become an Officer in the British army. He is reported to have been incredibly brave. Sadly, he died in battle in 1918. If you want to learn more about Walter, please click on his picture.
