Welcome to Class 6’s Webpage!
Our teacher is Miss Hodgson
Our Teaching Assistant is Mrs Ransome
This term our topic is ‘War and Peace.’ If you would like to know what we have been learning, why not have a look at our Y6 War and Peace Parent Planner.
We started the term by finding out about The Treaty of Versailles which ended the First World War. We were very surprised to learn the very strict terms of The Treaty, and the effect this had on ordinary people in Germany. This helped us to understand some of the causes of World War Two.
Since then, we have learnt many facts about World War Two by reading the book ‘Goodnight Mr Tom.’ It has helped us to understand why children were evacuated, and what life was like for them and their families during this time. We got into role, and wrote letters either as parents or evacuees. We also had a visit from Mrs Hodgson (Miss Hodgson’s Mum) who lived through the war in Hastings. She told us lots of stories about air-raids, rationing, evacuation, air-raid shelters, ‘ack ack’ guns, doodlebugs and even ‘unconscious pilot!’
We are really looking forwards to learning more about life on the home front in the 1930’s and 1940’s, and can’t wait to welcome you to our Class Worship on Friday 13th March.
