Over one hundred years ago, on 4th August 1914, German troops began pouring over the border into Belgium, starting the first major battle of World War I. Many thought it was the war to end all wars. The Great War killed 10 million people, redrew the map of Europe and marked the rise of the United States.
We will be using our final term to look back at the First World War, to learn about the causes of the conflict, the western front and its trenches, the home front, the end of the war and how the Allies won, why the world has never been the same and how we commemorate this hugely significant historical event today.
Come back soon to see some photos of our learning!
