Hello year 6!
What a busy week you have had! Lots of writing and SATs papers too! We have worked hard this week and hopefully we can complete all our lovely work on WW2 next week!
To celebrate the learning, this week I would like you to create and prepare items for our exciting WW2 day!

You could make gas mask boxes, labels, ration books, identity cards...
You can pack a suitcase and be ready for our day of fun!
