On Thursday, Year 5 took over the hall to begin our new World War 2 focus. We are going to look at the events of Dunkirk and in particular Operation Dynamo, which is when hundreds of civilians sailed, rowed and tugged boats from England to France to rescue the British and allied forces, who had been trapped by the German forces. Dunkirk will be used to inspire our writing, history and even our science for the next couple of weeks.
Our opening began with listening to Churchill's speech. We pretended to be the civilians, waiting to depart for Dunkirk. We used our measuring and ratio skills in maths to map out the distance that it would have been to Dunkirk and worked out - using the distance and average mile per hour - how long it would have taken the men, women and children to get there. It has really excited us for our next bit of learning on Dunkirk. Pop back soon and see how we are getting on!
