A Child's War Term 5

Term 5 A Child's War

 During this term we will be reading the key text 'The Silver Sword' by Ian Serrailier. This story, based on fact, is an extraordinarily moving account of life during and after the Second World War. 

Throughout this term, Whitebeam class will be exploring the events leading up to the outbreak of the war and the effects that it ultimately had on the lives of so many. They will experience air raids and learn how children, of a similar age to them, were evacuated.

We will find out what it was like to ration food and, even try making 'war cake'.
