Summer 2 IPC PROJECT: First World War

What's the big idea?

What are the consequences when powerful families fall out? How can choices made by individuals affect others? We will be looking at the causes of the First World War, and the effects that this event had on different countries around the world.

Can You Help?

Do you have knowledge or resources about our project?

Could you give some time to come into class to help with reading? Please come and talk to your child’s teacher if you can help!

  • In History:

    We will be able to:

    • Find out about aspects of the past from a range of sources

    We will know:

    • What lead to the beginning of the First World War.

    We will be developing our understanding of:

    •  How some aspects of the past have been represented and interpreted in different ways.
  • In International :

    We will know:

    • About ways in which the lives of people in the countries we have studied affect each other. 
    • About similarities and differences between the lives of people in different countries in the past.

    We will be able to:

    • Identify ways in which people work together for mutual benefit.
  • IN Maths And English :


    Please help your child to know all of the times tables facts up to 12 x 12 and their related division facts. 

    This is incredibly important and is actually a Year 4 objective.

    We will also be working hard to remember how to:

    •  To be able to recognise 2D and 3D shapes.


    We will be learning how to write: Diary entries, letters and descriptions.

    We will continue to improve our SPaG knowledge, skills, and understanding, in particular: spelling rules involving suffixes and prefixes, and adverbial phrases showing time, manner and place.
