Throughout Spring 1, Team DB have focussed their History learning on World War One. We started our history unit by focussing on the outbreak of war and the countries that were involved. We looked at historical maps in order to locate these countries especially as some countries have changed their names in the last 100 years! This enabled us to incorporate some of our geography skills too, linking the two areas of learning together. Afterwards, we have learnt about the role of the British Empire in 1914 and this further developed our understanding as to why so many other countries became involved in the war due to their connections with Britain, looking at how vast the British Empire was in the early 20th Century. Following on from this, we looked at the use of propaganda when recruiting men and women and their job roles within the war. Our most recent lessons have focussed on the frontline and the trenches. In Spring 2, we will be predominately learning about the Ancient Greeks, however, there are still elements of WW1 that we will be learning about and of course, we will also be hosting our WW1 Day with Mr Fidment!
