Year 6 WW2 day - May 2021
During the first half of the summer term, the children in Year 6 had to the opportunity to understand the experiences of people who lived during the Second World War. A guest speaker came in and led the children through the history of these events, starting from the rise of Nazi Germany, the expansion across Europe, and the effect it had on life for those back in Britain.
