Our Learning this term:
A Child at War!
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 Stormtroopers in a secret annexe, and try to empathise with her hopes and fears.
Make do and mend – and cook up a family meal from meagre rations. Delve deep into a bygone era, when loose lips sank ships.
And, as peace is declared, let’s get ready to celebrate. Mr Churchill says ‘It’s an unconditional surrender!’
p.s. Don't forget every Thursday afternoon this term, we will be having our swimming lessons! A letter will be sent out during the first week of Term 1.

To kick off our topic the first theme around World War II that we will be learning about is Evacuation. If you can start gaining as much knowledge about this as you can, before you return to school on the 5th of September, this will give you a good head start and a base knowledge ready to go deeper with your understanding!
Who was evacuated?
When were people evacuated?
Where were people evacuated?
Why were people evacuated?
What happened when people were evacuated?
How were people evacuated?
What a great start to our first week in Year 6! On Friday 8th September we ventured to Dover Castle to explore the war tunnels, Operation Dynamo, the command posts, the amazing views and of course, it would be rude not to have a look around the medieval castle whilst we were there!
The pupils gained a wealth of knowledge and didn't let the downpours dampen their day!
