Hawk Class - Year 5
In Term 1 of 2021/22, we are learning about World War II
In Hawk class our class project is, What makes a hero? For history, we are learning about World War Two. In World War Two, there was an evil man called Hitler.
When the war began, millions of children were evacuated. Being an evacuee was hard but staying in London was highly dangerous. World War Two began in 1939 but continued to 1945.
WWII had a number of events including the Blitz which had non-stop bombing for eight months. Buckingham Palace in the process got bombed although the king and queen stayed despite being bombed. The king and queen went out looking at places which had been bombed. The royal family were German in origin, and during WWI, they changed their name to Windsor to sound more English.
We now know that being an a evacuee is really hard because you have to leave your family and your mum and dad might die. You won't have your toys. Sometimes the people you are staying with are not the kindest.
