Over the last two weeks, we have been writing newspapers reports in English. We used what we had learnt to write a newspaper report about about the outbreak of World War 2. We wrote our reports in several stages and did did several different drafts. Our final drafts were typed up on the computers to make them look like real news reports.
Continuing with our WW2 topic, we imagined what it would be like to be an evacuee. We imagined we had been evacuated and wrote a letter home from our new home. We even aged our paper with tea to make our letters look old!
In an exciting start to the new term, we began by having an evacuee day. We all dressed up as if we were from 1939 and learnt about what life would’ve been like for evacuees.
