Welcome to Year 6
Our Autumn 1 topic is
A siren sounds a building crumbles, a Spitfire zooms overhead! Take cover! It’s 1939 and Britain is at war. Deep down in the Andersen shelter, learn why nations are fighting and why child evacuees must make the long journey from their homes and families into an unknown territory.
Read the diary of Anne Frank, written whilst hiding from terrifying storm troopers in a secret annexe, and try to empathise with her hopes and fears.
Make do and mend – cook up a family meal from meagre rations. Delve in to 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!’
Cornerstones ILP ‘A Child’s War,’ Y6.
This half-term we are reading ‘Letters from the Lighthouse,’ by Emma Carroll.
