Conflict – Wars of the World launch!

Year 6 BlogComments Off on Conflict – Wars of the World launch!

To launch our conflict theme – Wars of the Worlds – we looked at the causes of World War One. We considered where WW1 fit on our timeline and found other evidence of conflict. In groups, we took on the identities of some of the countries involved in this war and located these on our large world map. We worked through a simulation of how alliances changed through the war and found out about the two main alliances: The Triple Alliance and The Triple Entente. The children witnessed how countries lost faith in one another when they saw spies or messages being passed between countries and they made decisions about who they thought their allies should be and why.
