World War II Topic WOW Day for Year 6!

On Friday 3rd December, Year 6 had an exciting Topic WOW Day to finish up our World War 2 topic and to feel how did the evacuees felt.
In the morning, many children came to school in costumes, made their identity cards and listed their name, school name and address. After that, they made shelters in their classrooms before the air raid sirens started! Children quickly escaped into their new shelters, listening to the sounds of the Blitz while writing a diary entry in their wicked writing books.

Y6 Topic WOW Day (1)

In the afternoon, the students mixed and split into 4 groups and took part in four exciting World War 2-themed activities.

  • They created propaganda videos, where students used their knowledge of the Clips app to create a video explaining how to wear a gas mask.
  • They had First-Aid, which we learned how to wrap people’s arm in bandages and the recovery position.
  • As well as this, they had code breaking activity, where they used their Maths skills to crack the Enigma Code.
  • Finally, they researched and created their own war-themed recipes.

We asked many children what their favourite part of the day was. Gyubeen Jung of 5LS said, “I enjoyed building and being in the shelters.” Meanwhile, Dudu Lei’s favourite moment was “learning how to wrap arms and practicing the recovery position!” It is clear to see that children had a very enjoyable day and Year 6 students are already looking forward to their next Topic WOW Day!
