Year 6 will be considering how decisions that have been made in the past still have an impact on our world today. As part of this study, we will look at the time of ‘World War 2’, considering decisions that were made by world leaders and ‘ordinary’ people, giving the children an opportunity to read a variety of texts and providing a wide range of writing experiences. To help bring this subject to life, we have organised a trip to Stibbington to take part in an Evacuation Day on Friday 10th January.
The children will have the opportunity to re-enact a day in the life of a child evacuated from London to Stibbington in the 1940’s, including life in the wartime countryside, lessons in the period classroom, a gas mask drill, and an air raid, with period’ costumes, luggage labels, ID cards and gas masks.They will be leaving school at 9.00am and will be returning by the end of the school day (traffic allowing). We are really looking forward to this exciting trip!
