Autumn 1 - A Child's War

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, children will learn why nations are fighting and why child evacuees must make the long journey from their homes and families into unknown territory. We will read the story of Rose Blanche and find out about Anne Frank, writing her diary whilst hiding from the terrifying stormtroopers in a secret annexe, and try to empathise with her hopes and fears. As part of our Design and Technology we will find out about the Make do and mend initiatives and cooking up family meals from meagre rations. We will delve deep into a bygone era, when loose lips sunk ships. And, as peace is declared, let’s get ready to celebrate. Mr Churchill says ‘It’s an unconditional surrender.’
