Year 6 have studied World War 2 in some depth this term. No matter how empathetic we try to be, this costly conflict remains somewhat abstract; a lesson from history. However, with their recent projects, the students succeeded in shining a personal light on this period. A new dimension of their studies was opened up as they researched how the war affected their relatives and—indirectly—how their own lives have been indirectly shaped by the tribulations of their great grandmothers and great grandfathers.
Many thanks to the students for sharing their valuable findings and to the families who helped make their research possible.
