Summer Term - World War II

Goodnight Mister Tom - A Novel by Michelle Magorian

World War II tale in which a curmudgeonly widower living in a small village takes in a nine-year-old evacuee from London. The widower soon realises that his young charge has had a difficult life in London at the hands of his strict mother. He sets about giving the boy a new lease of life, teaching the youngster to read, write and draw, but as his tenth birthday looms, the child is summoned back to the city.

Year 6 learn about World War II through the eyes of Willie Beech, a young evacuee from London. Our writing is created by the children's experiences of the novel. 






We have some pupils who are self-isolating at the moment, so we will provide resources here every week that link to the curriculum we are following in school. 


                    Oak National Academy and BBC Bitesize have some interactive home learning resources.


The Oak National Academy is an online classroom set up by teachers when lockdown started in March 2020. They have a huge range of high-quality video lessons and resources which are still available.
