Term 2

This half term in Year 6, our topic will be 'Bristol Blitz'. We will be following the journey of Word War 2, beginning with investigating the factors that instigated the war. Learners will then research life as an evacuee to discover how this impacted children at the time. They will also learn about other aspects of the war, such as rationing, the key figures within the war and the impact of the war on Bristol itself. As part of our exploration of rationing, we will be making some war-inspired dishes in week 5 and week 6. We will also be putting together a small performance of war-time songs that will be shared via Dojo. We hope that the children find this unit interesting and that they are able to share all of their wartime knowledge with you!
