A Child’s War

Autumn Term 2018

Year 6 Autumn Term 2018

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.

Make do and mend – 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!

There is a History focus to this project and the children will be learning about the 2nd World War through the eyes of a child of their own age.
