Christmas Tree Decoration

Today we made a decoration to hang on the Christmas tree. 

 

Evacuee Poem

As part of our topic we have recited an evacuee poem off by heart. 

I’ve left my Mum, she had to stay
I wish she’d come with me today.
I’ve left my bike, my pride and joy
I couldn’t bring my favourite toy
I’ve left my friends, all I know
I wish I didn’t have to go.

 

Gas Mask Boxes

As part of our topic ‘WW2 The Home Front’ we learnt about gas masks and that everyone needed to carry their gas mask box with them at all times. We coloured the net of a cuboid, cut the net out and folded it carefully. We then stuck the flaps to the side of the box and made two holes for the string handle. We also created a label for our boxes.

 

Metal Detectors 

We found out that within Nuneaton and other places in the UK any spare metal was collected up during WW2 to be melted down to make weapons such as guns, bullets and bombs, and helmets for the soldiers. Today we went for a walk around our school grounds to look for metal that could have been melted down for WW2 weapons.

 

Evacuee Suitcase

This week in our Topic ‘WW2 The Home Front’ we have been thinking about how it would feel to be an evacuee and have to leave your home quickly. We have drawn and coloured items that are special to us to add to our suitcases. We thought about why we would want to take each of these items with us.

 

Identity Cards

To kick start our topic 'WW2 The Home Front' we all made our own identity cards to keep safe in our drawers. If we are ever stopped by a member of the army we must present these straight away so that they know we are from Great Britain and no from one of the Axis countries. It was a criminal offence not to carry your identity card during World War Two.

 

Blitz Experience 

Today we experienced what it would be like during WW2, The Blitz. When the air raid siren began we had to quickly take shelter and hide under the tables to keep safe. We knew it was safe to come out when we heard the siren for the second time.
