Learners will research the Blitz and the effect of World War Two on civilians, they will find out about the different types of shelters used during the Blitz and use this knowledge to design and create their own, using mathematical skills to ensure their shelter is constructed to their correct dimensions.
Learners will explore how to use Code Builder within Minecraft: Education Edition to construct a building of their own design.
