World Wars Spring 1 2018

World Wars

During the Spring term, Year 5 will be learning all about the World Wars.  This is a fantastic topic with lots of interesting things to find out about.  This links with our literacy unit all about Kensuke's Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo.  
Here is some of our work on Kensuke's Kingdom.

Stockport Air Raid Shelters
As part of our topic, we will be visiting Stockport Air Raid Shelters for a day of role play.  We enjoyed being evacuees and seeing what it might have felt like for children at the time.  We felt lucky to see some great artefacts and visit the air raid shelters themselves.  This really brought the topic alive for all of us.

We spent time looking at Rations.  Here are some pictures below.  Do you think you could survive on these Rations?  We came up with balanced arguments about whether or not rationing should have happened.  What do you think?
