Autumn 2 Year A - A Child's War
We will have a World War II day at school on the 27th November 2019 where we'll undertake lots of activities such as; making our own gas mask boxes,finding out what to do in an air raid and tasting war time rations!
We tasted some of the rations.
We had a great day making and trying soup!
Make do and mend - cook up a family meal from meagre rations. Delve deep into a bygone era, when loose lips sank ships!
All the children worked together in groups to complete a class challenge. They needed to research, design and make a shelter that would have been used during the war.
These are the Anderson Shelters made by the children. They are absolutely fabulous.
And, as peace is declared. let's get ready to celebrate. Mr Churchill says 'It's an unconditional surrender!'
A siren sounds, a building crumbles, a Spitfire zooms overhead. Take cover! It's 1939 and Britain is at war. Deep down in the Anderson shelter, learn why nations are fighting and why child evacuees must make the long journey from their homes and families into unknown territory.
Read the diary of Anne Frank, written whilst hiding from the terrifying storm troopers in a secret annexe and try to empathise with her hopes and fears...
Amazing letter sent home to parents as an child evacuee!
The children loved making WORLD WAR bread during our D.T lesson :)
Amazing homework projects.
