Year 6 had a great visit to Beaumanor Hall on Tuesday 13th March. Everyone entered into ‘the spirit of the day’ by dressing up in period clothes, carrying their pretend gas mask boxes and even wrapping their lunches in greaseproof paper tied up with string.
We learnt what it would have been like to listen to enemy messages during WW2 and how to decode them; used ration books for shopping, and even experienced a simulation of an air raid.
This half term year 6 have been learning about WW2 and the life of Anne Frank. We have researched her life and written biographies which document her life in hiding.
