Visit to Liverpool on Wednesday 16th November

Date: 13th Nov 2016 @ 11:39am

This letter and some printed information will be given to the children on Monday.

In order to prepare you for our visit to Liverpool on Wednesday, I have given you some information about The Beatles and about what life was like in Britain in the 1960s.

The 1960s was a significant turning point in British history because it was a decade of freedom and hope where anything was possible. Music was one of the main influences on the lives of young people and The Beatles were at the forefront of this revolution. The 1960s was also a decade of huge developments in technology and fashion. Women and girls became much more prominent and independent, going into varied careers and asserting their right to be seen as equals to men and boys.

After our visit we will be doing some artwork based on the 1960s movement of pop art and looking at some famous 1960s artists like Andy Warhol and Peter Blake. This will be included in our class assembly in December.

The 1960s is not quite in the right order for our topic work as we still have two other significant turning points to study before we get to that decade – it has just taken a little longer than I thought to get there!

There is a lot more to discover about the 1960s on the internet if you are interested, and you will have more ideas about what to search for after our visit.
