History: Why were so many lives lost on the Western Front? https://www.thenational.academy/year-6/foundation/why-were-so-many-lives-lost-on-the-western-front-year-6-wk1-4

In today’s lesson, you will be learning about the major events of the First World War, including trench warfare, the Battle of the Somme, and why America joined the war.

Maths: I thought today we would revisit our mental fluency skills with a quick mental arithmetic test, answers are on page 2 of the document, so do your best not to scroll down to quickly. Good luck 🙂

Have a great weekend, and I know I will be seeing some of you back on Monday.
