This morning in Literacy, we were searching about Anne Frank which links within out topic of WW2. Her diary was published about her feelings and experiences. We had to write a diary entry and predict what would happen next. We remembered to make it more interesting and intriguing by using similes and metaphors. Most f predicted she would get captured!

Writing a biography

Safe And Happy

During last week were were discussing as a class how to be safe and happy and caring towards others. As a class we excelled in showing our understanding of the importance of safe and happy and how to be kind and caring towards others. We then designed our own schools plans and created a safe and happy environment with friends showing kindness.

Dig for Victory

Did you know a ‘Dig for Victory’ campaign was set up during World War 2. This was because men and women were forced to grow their own fruit and vegetables because of the shortage of foods. People living in the UK were going through rationing, which they were limited to their supplies of food.

Today, we have researched the Dig for Victory campaign and designed our own gardens. We thought carefully about the measurement and the cost of the items.
