I was there … Escape from the Blitz
This term year 6 will be grabbing our suitcases and hopping aboard a steam train on a journey into Britain’s wartime past. Bombs? Rations? Gas masks? We will be the children who can say ‘I was there’. As we follow Betty on her journey of evacuation to safety; from her London home to the posh country mansion of formidable Lady Florence Musgrave.
We will be writing a range of genres around the text linked to WW2 including;
- A Diary entry from Betty’s viewpoint
- A description of the blitz – during an air raid
- Letter home as an evacuee
