A Child's War

Remembrance Day

Today, Years 5 and 6 went to observe the 2 minute silence at the Franklin Statue with members of the wider community including representatives of the Royal British Legion and ex serviceman. The last Post was played and the children were complimented on their outstanding behaviour and mature attitude.


We followed this with a visit to Spilsby cemetery to place wreaths and crosses on the graves of the servicemen laid to rest there. Members of the British Legion guided us round and told us about each of the servicemen before we placed the wreaths and crosses. Another poignant and humbling morning.

We have been researching the story of Anne Frank and working in groups to create a time line showing the events. Such a thought-provoking and humbling topic which the children have approached with such maturity.

This week we have been creating our very own poppy-themed stained glass windows in Art and DT. We started by sketching our designs, then we transferred this to black sugar paper, carefully cut it out with a craft knife and then placed tissue paper over the design to create the window effect. This took so much patience, skill and resilience and the children did such a wonderful job.

For the second part of the afternoon, Year 5 had a very thought provoking and humbling lesson about The Holocaust. They spent time learning about the tragic events as well as reading some recounts from victims of the event.

This afternoon, Year 5 looked at the locations in Britain, which were targeted by the German forces during World War Two. They had to consider why certain areas were heavily bombed compared to others, which were moderately bombed.

Year 5 had a very busy afternoon looking at key events from the Second World War. They then chose an event to study in more detail and worked collaboratively to create a class timeline.
