An Introduction to World War II

imageThis Monday morning was particularly exciting for Year Six as we were introduced to our new Topic – World War Two.

All of Year Six were told to sit at their tables with their eyes closed. Excited, nervous, tense – we had no idea what was about to happen. Then, all of a sudden, we heard a loud siren, followed by a man’s voice talking about England being at war with Germany.

We later discovered that man’s voice was Neville Chamberlain, the Prime Minister of the UK at the start of WWII.

You can hear exactly what he had to say on this video:

Afterwards, we were split into seven groups and instructed to visit all the different stations which had been set up around the classroom.

Interestingly, we were instructed to write everything we already knew about World War II, then we had to move around the stations and add any new facts that we’d learned onto out sheets. By the end of the lesson, our sheets very VERY full and we had learnt some fantastic new facts!

What a great lesson!
