World War Two: What impact did this have on Boston and the world?

Year 6 have produced some fantastic topic work this morning, answering our overarching question for the term - World War Two: What impact did this have on Boston and the world? Superb application of their historical learning of the whole term.


A fantastic parent event, taking part in our Year 6 quiz afternoon. Lots of fun and retrieval of what we have learnt this term. Thank you to the parents who were able to join us.



Here is our new hall display, celebrating all of our wonderful World War Two learning this term.


Year 6 are now focusing on evacuation during World War Two. We explored some real accounts of people evacuated to and from Lincolnshire during WW2, before using hot-seating and creating emotion line graphs based on our inferences.


Year 6 are demonstrating their excellent basketball skills today with Mr Melson. The children at Wyberton Primary love their sport and P.E lessons and it has been great to see the Deer class make progress with their defending and shooting skills.


We have had a brilliant day at Duxford! The children have learnt so much and applied their learning of WW2 brilliantly. A great day with a great bunch of children, sharing their excitement and enjoyment of our topic. 


The Deer class have been learning about the different types of planes used in World War Two warfare. They have asked many questions and spent time researching their different features, all in preparation for our trip to Duxford IWM. 


Year 6 are looking at the impact of World War Two in Wyberton and the local area. The children are shocked that so many bombs were dropped in the area during the war!


Here is a sample of some of our propaganda posters. The children understood brilliantly what their role was and what an effective propaganda poster from WW2 would have looked like.



Year 6 are already gripped with our new class book - ‘Letters From The Lighthouse’ - just by exploring the front cover and blurb! They are making some excellent predictions and can’t wait to discover what happens to Olive!


We have also studied propaganda, exploring some of the famous World War Two posters which were circulated. We identified the purpose of the propaganda, including the target audience, and understood why they were used. Year 6 will then apply this understanding to create their own propaganda posters - keep an eye out for these on display!


Today's lesson explored the chronology of the outbreak of World War Two. After reading and conducting research, the children had a challenging task: match the dates with the events, before sequencing chronologically. This challenge took the children some time, but they carefully applied their research findings in order to complete it. Well done, Year 6! 


An excellent day back with Year 6 today. We launched our new topic by retrieving our knowledge from last term, using it to make comparisons to Chamberlain’s 1939 declaration of war speech in WW2. The children have already produced some brilliant work!




Here is our new display, ready for this term’s topic of World War Two: what impact did this have on Boston and the world?
