WW2 activities

World War Two


In Class 4, we are currently learning about World War 2. Look at our videos and photographs below.
In an English lesson, we looked at a WWII book called Rose Blanche. It is a very sad story about a German girl's experiences during WWII. We used Pie Corbett's Talk for Writing to retell the opening of the story. See below!

After learning about evacuees in the war, Class 4 acted in role as parents and children evacuees in the War. Some children chose to act very upset, others saw it as an exciting adventure! We discussed how it must have been a very difficult time for parents and children.

The children in Class 4 were given different WW2 activities for their homework. Stephen created a fantastic gas mask at home!
The children created their own sketches of scenes during WW2. The children used different photos of WW2 to help them create their own sketch.
