The Battle of Britain
Nearly a thousand years after the Battle of Hastings,we are ready to study the Battle of Britain. Once again, the children have really engaged with this topic and in some instances we have been able to relate some of these events to our descendants. Mason Longhurst has shared with 6H copies of some truly poignant letters exchanged between his great grandfather and great grandmother during this period in history. At the moment the children are discovering information about the Blitz and what life was like for children during and after the Battle for Britain.
In Art, to link with the Battle of Britain, the children have made some spectacular model Spitfires and Messerschmitts. Lennon Keeble was so inspired by these lessons that he made his own Spitfire model at home and brought it into school. It is brilliant.
After SATs, the children are looking forward to many exciting activities, especially the residential trip, Crucial Crew and the Year 6 production.
