This is the place to go to talk about the challenges of teaching mixed age classes. The TES Mixed Age group is a great source of ideas, inspiration and advice and is the place to share best practice and get your questions answered by your peers.
My 3/4 class loved reading the Lion and the Unicorn and was a great starting point to our WW2 work. We later went on to write evacuee letters from the authors and letters unit and then wrote information texts about WW2.
Micheal morpugo had done loads of ww1 + 2 related stories - most need tissues.....
I used Doodlebug Alley (can't remember the author but look on Amazon) with Y3/4. Much more accessible for Y3/4 than some of the Michael Morpurgo texts which I know for my class would have been too complex. Lots of my class bought the book after as they enjoyed it so much. I have a script I wrote for a WW2 assembly/play (about 20mins) if you're interested.
NB - e-mail addressi listed above - doesn't work any more, i changed schools and counties!
