WW2 WOW Day
To celebrate the end of our Dig For Victory Unit, Year 6 took part in a WW2 WOW Day consisting of testimonies of War survivors, learning the fictional story of Leo (a Jewish child living in Germany through the war) and taking part in discussions about different perspectives of the War.
During the day, the children were able to touch and explore different artefacts, use their map skills to determine which cities were destroyed and where the bombs were dropped as well as ask questions to an Austrian survivor who fled to England in 1938.
It was clear to see that all the children had learnt a lot about this period of time and their interest and passion was evident to everybody who worked with them that day. Our visitors commented on how enthusiastic and polite the children were and noted how engrossed they had become with this topic.
Thank you for all of your support with the home learning projects this term and we hope all the children have enjoyed learning about this significant piece of history.
Up next...Staying Alive!
