We have been busy learning more about our topic of World War Two this week. We have explored what Anderson shelters were made of and how they were constructed. This is going to help us later on when we try to make our own! We have created some beautiful poppy work, related last week’s Remembrance Day. We have carefully mixed colours to make a simple background, making the red poppies stand out. We wanted the poppies to be the main focus of the painting to show how important they are in our memories. We have spent most of the week finishing off and publishing a very special newspaper report. This report is about our visit to Scarlett House last week, where we interviewed some of the residents about their wartime memories. We are hoping to share this work, amongst other pieces, with the residents at a Christmas tea party in a few weeks time.
