Have a wonderful half term with your family and friends! Stay safe and have lots of fun! We can't wait to hear about where you have visited.  There is a great WW2 day out that you can have in Uxbridge at The Battle of Britain Bunker: http://battleofbritainbunker.co.uk/ It's free for children and only £4 for adults.

Your homework over the half term week is:

- to collect a cereal box and get them ready to bring in for DT on the first day back. 

- choose a topic about World War 2 that you are interested in! It could be rationing, Winston Churchill, planes, women, fashion, tanks etc. It doesn't have to be one of these - it's your choice. Your task is to research this area ready to create a small project (which you will do AFTER half term).

Hello! Your homework this weekend is to use the template below to create a profile for an evacuee child. You are to make up their backstory and draw a picture of them in the box. Use your new portrait-drawing skills to draw a FACE  (not a full body) picture. The face must show an emotion. We have put an example below so that you understand what to do. 

Also, start preparing an evacuee costume for our Lincolnsfield trip! We go in-character as people from WW2! Google evacuees from WW2 to get ideas.  You might consider a gas mask box as well to add to the look!
