Spring 2

Our big question for this half term is:

What was life like in Britain during World War 2?

Throughout this half term we will be developing and building upon our previous half term's  knowledge of World War 2. However unlike last half term, we will be focusing on the war from the British side. We will be learning about how the war affected Britain and what it was like in Britain throughout the 6 year battle. Some key themes we will focus on are: the purpose of propaganda, the Blitz, evacuation, women's roles, rationing and how the war ended. 

In order to be able to answer our big question, our Topic lessons are sequenced carefully and aim to answer a specific question. Our lesson questions are below:

1. why and how were people enthused to join the war effort?

2. What will a night during the Blitz have been like?

3. What was Operation Pied Piper?

4. What was rationed during WW2?

5. Did women just stay at home during WW2?

6. How did WW2 end?

To support our World War 2 in Britain learning this half term we will be reading the novel 'Letters from the Lighthouse' by Emma Carroll. It is is a historical mystery set in WWII Britain. When Olive's sister goes missing during an air raid, Olive is determined to find out what happened. Unfortunately, just like many children, Olive and her younger brother Cliff are evacuated to the countryside where it is safer. Olive finds a secret coded note so everything gets a whole lot more confusing, but Olive is convinced to crack the code and find out what happened to her sister Sukie.

Our big question this half term is...

Who were the Victorians and what did they do for us?

This half term in our History and English lessons we are learning all about The Victorians! We will be comparing the lives of the rich and the poor, understanding what schooling was like, the jobs that poor children had to do and even learning about how the Industrial Revolution impacted Leeds. Keep an eye out for photos of our exciting work. 




We are looking forward to reading Street Child by Berlie Doherty in which we learn about the life of little Jim Jarvis who lives life on the Victorian streets. Ask your child about their favourite part so far!

Our big question for this half term is :

Which type of natural disaster has the largest impact on human life?

We will be looking at a variety of different natural disasters including: the impact and damage they can have on people and places;  some of the signs that a natural disaster is looming; how some natural disasters occur and using our map skills to plot some historical natural disasters. We will also be linking our topic of natural disasters in our writing and reading.


What are we reading in Year 6?
