World War Two

MVI_2699.mp4

We have been reading Carrie's War by Nina Bawden. It is about Carrie and her younger brother Nick who are evacuated to Wales. We looked in depth at the characters of Auntie Lou and Mr Evans to help us understand how authors use language to build the character by showing their personality through speech and mannerisms. We wrote our own flash back stories to World War Two.

Our Class Assembly about World War II

We visited the Royal Air Force Museum in Hendon. Here we learned what it was like to be school children during the War. We used ink pens to write with, learned arithmetic with pounds, shillings and pence and even had to hide under the desk when the air raid siren sounded. We saw lots of aircraft of the time.

Bully Beat

As part of World Awareness Week, we had a visit from Nathan Timothy and the Song Writing Charity. We spent a day writing, rehearsing, performing , recording and remixing our own song about bullying. Here are some photos of the day.

Armistice Day

We visited Zinc to learn more about Armistice day. We made poppies from clay and painted pictures of sunset bombing raids in remembrance of those that we have lost in war. It was fascinating to learn more about our local history.
