Remembrance Day in Year 5

We started the day by transforming 5N into an air raid shelter. Inside the shelter, we imagined what it would be like to listen to Churchill's finest hour speech and lose our loved ones to war. We each drew a visualisation of how we were feeling.
Next, we made memory boxes, just like the ones children would have made whilst they were in an air raid shelter.
In the afternoon, we were evacuees! We each received a destination card and had to work in groups to research the new location we were being sent to and what life was like for evacuees in World War 2.
There were some fantastic costumes,
so well done Year 5 for getting into the spirit of it!
