 Our topic for this half term is ‘Coventry – a local history study’

 

The children will investigate the changing industry in Coventry over the last 300 years. They will visit the Coventry Transport Museum and the City Centre and look at how the skills used in weaving developed through watch making to bicycles, motorcycles and cars and how the Second World War changed the face of Coventry to what the children see around them today.
