Welcome back Year 6.
Our topic this half term is ‘A child’s War’. Imagine…
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, we will learn why nations are fighting and why child evacuees must make the long journey from their homes and families into unknown territory.
We will investigate what happened during the London Blitz, learn about the different wartime leaders of the world, examine letters that were sent from those dreadful trenches and compare our lives now to those that lived 80 years ago. We shall delve deep into a bygone era, when loose lips sunk ships. And, as peace is declared, get ready to celebrate. Mr Churchill says, ‘It’s an unconditional surrender.’
Within our writing and VIPERS lessons we will be exploring extracts from the books 'Goodnight Mr. Tom' and 'The Diary of Anne Frank'. Two amazing and engrossing reads that detail the struggles and emotional challenges the characters experience.
P.E Kit requirements:
-Sky Blue Biscovey Academy t-shirt

Additionally, the children will receive a set number of spellings to practise per week.
