In class we have been writing about being caught in an air raid .First we had to plan it through and thought about some vocabulary .Then we wrote it in stages.We shared our stories with each other so we could get some ideas from each other’s stories.
Here’s the begining of Robyn’s story:
As the night lit into flames the ear bursting air raid siren sounded through the smokey city. I rushed through the crowd of terrified people to the dark dusty air raid shelter. The thought of the enemy bombs hitting this one time wonderful city hit me. I felt anger building up inside me, these wonderful buildings destroyed and peoples lives ruined.

This afternoon Sarah Cowie from Museum Services visited us to help us with the creation of a WW2 museum.She brought some artefacts for us to examine.We had to wear gloves to handle the WW2 objects.A magnifying glass helped us to examine small areas closely.After we had examined them we wrote a label to describe the item.
Today we completed a challenge to find out about what school was like during the war.Each group was given 2 areas to research and then had to create a poster showing what we had found out. We then had to present our findings to the other groups.
Our topic this term is WW2. We will be investigating many aspects of WW2 such as The Blitz,Evacuation, Propaganda and Scotland during the war. It would be great if you wanted to extend your knowledge and research at home.Any information can be used as part of our class work.
You will be given the opportunity to carry out a personal project about an aspect of WW2 so start thinking about it now.
Your Topic Needs You!
