This week, Y6 have done a fantastic job working on their WWII newspaper articles, propaganda posters and evacuee suitcases.
Our theme for this term centres on ‘Children in World War II’. Whilst looking at many aspects of the war, we are focusing our learning around the evacuation of children from the major cities of England in the build up to the Blitz.
To aid our research into this period of history we have watched a short clip from the film ‘Goodnight Mr Tom’. The children would like to watch the whole film. As it is certificated PG, we need parental permission to allow the children to watch the film. It is recommended for ages 10-12+. To streamline this process, we only require you to let us know, via your child’s journal, if you do not want your child to watch the DVD.
Homework this week has a maths focus and is in your child’s homework folder. I intend to set the first home learning project for the term next week; once we’re real WWII experts!
