We have also been on two fantastic trips whilst we have been studying WW2. First we went to the discovery museum where we completed a workshop all about WW2 on Tyneside. Then we visited Eden Camp in March. Both trips really brough the war to life!
We also looked at a range of sources when exploring what life was like for an evacuee. We then wrote letters home as if we had been evacuated!
We also looked at the need for Anderson Shelters. We then designed and built our own models!
We explored maps, looking at the places Germans planned to attack during the war and compared them to where was actually hit. We discussed the reasons for this and where they would want to attack.
This term we have been exploring the question, "How did the people of Tyneside survive WW2?'
We have explored where on Tyneside was hit by the German bombs, what life was like during the blitz, how evactuation and rationing effected the area as well as some of the more famous battles of the war.
Welcome to Y6EB.
We have a fun filled year of learning, enjoying and making the most of our last year at Amberley.
We have some great things lined up: an Eden Camp visit, France, a Making £5 Grow project and many more.
