In the afternoon, we were making our World War Two toys. We were cutting out our fabrics into the shapes we wanted! Hopefully next lesson we will get on to sewing them and stuffing them! Also we have been computing too! We have been designing houses which we have been colouring and trying to add furniture windows and chimneys!

In topic we looked at the two teams in the ww2 (Allies and Axis). In the Allies there was Britain Cannada India France and USA and a couple more. The war started when Germany invaded Poland to gain land. Britain then retaliated and Neville I chamberlain declared war on Germany. In computing we did sketchup which is a app when you make houses (this was brilliant). We’ve moved on to adding detail to our houses which was challenging but fun. We can’t wait for the next session.

Yesterday we had a great day in Ks2. We started the day with a farewell from all of the children, ready to take their evacuee journey. We wrote on our labels and then all gathered in the waiting area. The air raid siren went off and we all escaped back to the classroom to hide under the chairs.
We explored what it would be like to be an evacuee and even experienced and air raid siren! ( multiple times).
We studied what rationing was and did some wartime maths to understand how it impacted upon families. It was tricky to work out your rations for a whole week.
After this we wrote postcards home. This was a message to our loved ones telling them how our journey was and if the family who selected us were being kind.
To extend our rationing knowledge we had a material ration book and we had to go and select some material to make a ‘make do and mend’ toy. This will be part of art lessons over the next few weeks. The children were trying to get as few crosses in their ration books as possible. Some succeded!
The day ended with a reinactment of VE Day, each class contributed a wartime treat and some British decoration. It was a great start to the topic.
Today as our first netball lesson we practiced footwork and then we practiced passing.The three passes we learnt were a shoulder pass,chest pass and bounce pass.Then we went into groups of three and made a square each of the three stood in each corner. Then we pass any pass we wanted and then ran to the spare corner.We all had a great time and can’t wait to do it again.
To start our new topic off we investigated sources from WW1 to uncover the past. We used enquiry skills, observation, analaysing and also inferenceing.
