King Edward Primary School and Nursery Excitement + Determination = Success


This term, our foundation subject learning will all be based around the topic of 'World War II'.


In our afternoon lessons, we will be exploring the geography and history behind ‘World War II’.  During the first half-term, we will be looking closer to home at Britain during this significant period in history, exploring aspects such as The Blitz, evacuation and the home front.


In the second part of the half-term, this topic will involve learning about the wider global impact of the war, with a particular emphasis on key events and turning points such as The Battle of Britain, Dunkirk and Pearl Harbour.


Throughout this fascinating termly topic, we will also be pursuing a music unit based on war songs and participating in an artist study linked to the work of 20th Century sculptor Henry Moore..
