  1. this is my homework because my mum told me I can’t print

    For almost six years from 1939 to 1945 Britain fought the toughest war it had ever experienced. World War II was total war – every person, every business, every service was involved.
    Britain did not fight alone, the war also involved many countries. World War II involved 61 countries with 1.7 billion people (three quarters of the world’s population).
    Fifty million people lost their lives and hundreds of millions people were injured.
    How did the Second World War start?
    After World War One ended in 1918, Germany had to give up land and was banned from having armed forces.
    Why did the Second World War start?
    The Second World War was started by Germany in an unprovoked attack on Poland. Britain and France declared war on Germany after Hitler had refused to abort his invasion of Poland.

  2. homework on the blitz:

    Hitler believed that by targeting civilians he could force the British to surrender and on 7th September 1940 began his daily bombing campaign. London was the main target but other major cities were also bombed. Casualties were high. On the first day of bombing 430 people were killed and 1,600 badly injured.

    Within a few weeks the daily bombing raids had become nightly raids. Hitler decided to make the bombing raids at night to increase the ‘fear factor’ and also to make people weaker by not allowing them to sleep properly.

    After May 1941, the bombing raids became less frequent as Hitler turned his attention to Russia. Nevertheless, the effects of the Blitz were devastating. 60,000 people lost their lives, 87,000 were seriously injured and 2 million homes were destroyed.

  3. About our day at Duxford

    On Thursday 14th October we went on an excellent trip to Duxford it was really intrersting and we went in this musem which had tanks in it. Most of them were camouflage but some were brown and black. When we were walking suddenly there was this firework noise and we saw jet black WW2 aeroplanes in the sky on our way to the lunch hall. After lunch (we had cakes) we finally went to learn about the battle of britian and we went in a room that they actually used to report stuff, we finally made our way back to the coach and set off home, the day was spectacular thank you Mrs Moore and Miss Baker

  4. I am glad you enjoyed the day! It really was exciting getting to be so close to the tanks and planes. Being able to see them flying, was a great finish to the trip. I will post the photos soon Maisie and then you can share them at home. Miss Baker

  8. On the 18th May year 6 went on a trip to Birmigham Flight Airport to see how all the planes flew. There were all completly diffrent coulord, sized aroplanes some with propellors on the end of them and some without.We all got put in two diffrent groups some in Mrs Moore’s group and some in Miss Bakers group also some in Mrs Wolpoles group and some in Mrs Marsh’es group. In our groups we went on the monorail Mrs Moore started it of by saying to us ”Shall i ask if we go on the monorail” and we all shouted ”YES YES !”. after we went on the relaxing but fast ride, we had got a task to do before so we went to finish that off. After a while we came back to the monorail just on stroll suddenly… Mrs Moore had a phone call from Mrs Marsh saying i have lost Charotte and Reece i left them on the monorail because the doors closed before i even got on so they are coming back on the monorail now please wait for them and we shall meet you there. After the tradge moment it was time to go back to the Flight Shool room to do another task that each group had my group one was the hardest. We had a map and we had to use the computors to reaserch some citys on the google maps we had done a bit of it and then it was finally luchtime. So we had to go on a very long walk to get to the spot my feet were killing me when i got there luckly on the way back me and Megan got a ride in the wheelchair. When we got back to the flight school because at school the years 2s were doing a cake salel. Mrs Hogkinsan very kindly packed some cakes for us to take i took up to i think about 70p the cakes were lush i really liked them. After that we carried on with the task we were doing before lunch. Then each group had to perfom the presontation… we finally got to the last one and that was Miss Bakers group there task was to perform a play so they did extreamly well it was so good. Then it was time to go home so we all had our stuff and got on the coach and went home.

    Thanks for taking us
