We'll Meet Again!

We'll Meet Again!

The Year 6 children took part in a World War 2 Day to celebrate the end of our topic ‘Keep Calm and Carry On’. They came to school dressed as evacuees or other people from the war, such as land girls.

In Maths on the previous day, the children made their own gas mask boxes to be worn on World War 2 Day.

The actual day began with the children taking part in the Harvest assembly. The children explained what rationing was and how important farming was during the war and performed the song ‘Yes! We Have No Bananas’.

During the day they made an evacuee identity label and completed an identification card. They also had the opportunity to make and taste some World War 2 recipes, such as a carrot sandwich filling and an apple dessert. The learned about how information was communicated through Morse code and used it to decode sentences and write their own secret sentences.

The children also watched ‘Goodnight Mr Tom’, which is about a boy evacuee. This allowed the children to see many of the things they had been learning about, such as an Anderson Shelter being built and the Blitz in London.

The children had a fantastic day and it was a lovely way to end our topic which the children had really enjoyed.
