Welcome to Year 6!
We hope you've had a restful Summer and are excited to come back to school. We have a new curriculum with lots of exciting and interesting topics. Out first topic is all about World War Two, focusing on the life of children in the war.
A Child's 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. We will be looking at the diary of Anne Frank, written whilst hiding from the terrifying stormtroopers in a secret annexe, to try to empathise with her hopes and fears. Make do and mend. Cook up a family meal from meagre rations. Delve deep into a bygone era, when loose lips sunk ships. And, as peace is declared, let’s get ready to celebrate. Mr Churchill says ‘It’s an unconditional surrender.’
We will be uploading a curriculum summary soon.....
