World at War

This term we are learning all about World War 1 and World War 2.

 

For our stunning start we spent the day at the Stockport war museum and air raid shelters finding out what life would be like for an evacuee in the war.

As part of our work on sound, we made our own instruments. We discussed how we could change the pitch and volume by using different skins for our drums and hitting them with more force.
