St John XXIII Catholic Primary School Inspiring Faith in our Future

Year 6

World War I + II 


This term our History topics have been World War I and World War II. We have learnt about the lives of people during both wars, what led to the wars and how they came to and end. A big part of the day was linked to our Science topic 'Light'. We learnt that during the Blitz people had a curfew and relied on candle light. To keep themselves occupied, children would story tell using hand puppets forming shadows.

We took part in many other activities too such as:

- completing a rationing book and given a 'new name'

- typical playground games e.g. save my bacon

- ate foods from this time at a tea party
