Year 6 experience the Battle of Britain
Yesterday afternoon, Year 6 gained an insight into what it might have been like for a London family during August 1940. They entered the classroom with the sounds, smells, and fears of the Battle of Britain. They sought protection inside our Anderson shelter because German planes were flying overhead. We listened to the rallying cries of Churchill’s ‘finest hour’ speech and created our own lines of enquiry to investigate.
Pupils later examined how and why WW2 started, who its leaders were and what was meant by ‘The Phoney War’
