Year 6 highlights

Autumn 1 – WW2

Year 6 have travelled back in time to learn all about WWII. We started with our fabulous ‘Play in a Day’ (still available to watch on our home learning blog). Since then, the children have learned all about the Blitz and the horrid time people living in cities had to endure. We have learned about the mixed experiences of evacuees and watched the movie ‘Goodnight Mister Tom’. We learned about the incredible odds the RAF went up against in ‘The Battle of Britain’ and wrote a letter home as a spitfire ace. Finally, we followed the adventures of Olive and Clive in our class story ‘Letters from the Lighthouse’. We have loved learning about this important historical event and have loved hearing the personal family stories the children have shared.
