This term, Year 6 will be learning about World War 2 through the eyes of an evacuee. Through every subject taught across the curriculum, children will develop their understanding of this fascinating time in British history. Topics explored will include a The Battle of Britain, Winston Churchill, The Blitz and various types of shelters. We're also going on a WW2 evacuee experience in November...!!!!
This term, Year 6 are studying a much-loved book 'Goodnight Mr Tom' as well as looking at War Poetry and non-fiction texts relating to the Second World War.
We have enjoyed analysing and writing our own War Poems. We particularly enjoyed looking at 'In Westminster Abbey' by John Betjeman.
With SATs later on in the year, we have already been busy practising skills learnt in previous years, as well as learning new skills including MANY, MANY calculations involving fractions and decimals!
