Our topic this half term: WWII

 

 

 

 

 

Make Do and Mend

After half term we will be "Making Do and Mending" - the children will be making something new from something old in the spirit of World War 2 making do. They will plan what to make before half term, and will need to collect the necessary materials over half term. They have to make something useful, and cannot buy anything that they might need - it has to be recycled. We have warned them not to "borrow" anything without asking first!

Year 5 Homework

Due in Monday 10th June (in time for our WWII Tea Party!)

 

World War 2 project

 

Choose an aspect of the war you would like to find out more about.

  • Role of women in the war (Land army, codebreaker at Bletchley Park…)
  • World war 2 aeroplanes/ tanks/ships etc.
  • Causes of the Second World War
  • The Blitz
  • Key event/ battle (not Battle of Britain or D-Day)
  • … any other aspect of the war that you are interested in finding out about.

 

All the finished projects will be exhibited at the VE celebration tea party so it will need to be of a high standard.

Your finished project may take the form of:

  • A 3D model with explanation (gas mask with booklet, Anderson shelter, model allotment with information…)
  • An information board (think of the ones we used for the quiz on our WW2 workshop day – could include diagrams, maps, facts, quotes…)
  • Booklet/ diary/collection of letters
  • No PowerPoints for this project please! All children’s work will be displayed for our exhibition in the hall.
