Autumn Term 1
This half term Year 6 will be learning all about World War 2. The children will be learning all about what it was like to be evacuated, rationing, propaganda, The Blitz, military, D-Day and much, much more. The children will be using their WW2 knowledge to support their writing across a range of genres, including poetry, setting description and a diary entry. In Reading the children will be looking at a range of text extracts to further develop their level of understanding about a given text type and apply this to a variety of question types. In mathematics the children will be looking at the Year 6 objectives as well as previous Year 5 objectives that also need to be taught.
WW2 Sensational Starter
7th September 2020
To start off our World War Two History topic we worked with Historic Workshop to share a wealth of knowledge all about WW2. The visitor played the role of the Chief Air Raid Warden of the Nottingham Division, and it was his job to transport the children back to the times of the Second World War! He was able to take the children back to 1933 and immersed them in interactive activities that made them feel as though they were living in war-time Britain (on the home front). The day was full of enriching and highly engaging work and the children learnt a great deal about life in World War Two.
