The Year 6 WW2 'Dig for Victory!'
As part of our World War 2 topic, Year 6 have been learning about the impact the war had on people's lives. We have looked at the important role rationing had in ensuring that food and clothes were distributed fairly.
We have also been learning about the 'Dig For Victory' campaign that encouraged people to use land wisely by growing as many vegetables as they could. As part of this, we planted our own vegetables in our garden area - we are looking forward to seeing how well our lettuce, red kale and pak choi grow so we can turn them into a delicious WW2 recipe! Watch this space!
Year 6 have had a GREAT start to our learning this week! We launched our World War Two topic with an ‘Evacuation Day.’ We listened to 'Neville Chamberlain’s Declaration of War Speech' and spent the morning getting ready to be evacuated. We made name placards, jam sandwiches for the long train journey and packed our suitcases with items recommended by the government. We even got to try on a gas mask, bought in by Alisa Adlem, to help us understand how it must have felt having to wear them in school!
During our long train journey, we learnt how to play Beetle Drive, a popular WW2 game for children.
We wrote letters and postcards home to our families telling them all about our evacuation experiences.
Year 6 are really excited about their upcoming WW2 learning this term

Year 6 World War 2 Cafe
Well, what an inspirational afternoon we had. We were joined by people with a wealth of experience: from a German solider to an evacuee from London. The children behaved impeccably and one gentleman commented saying 'Your children are a credit to your school, their families and their friends.'
We are learning all about ratio in Maths. Some of us have experimented with different ratios of water and squash to make the perfect drink.
We have also been using bar modelling to help us understand and solve ratio word problems.
