On February 1st 2012, 2nd and 3rd class in Room 6, began to read our class novel, 'Carrie's War' by Nina Bawden. We explored World War 2 from a child's point of view. Many subject areas were included in our study; history, geography, art, music, drama and many aspects of English. When we finished reading our novel, we had a 100 question table quiz. We also watched Carrie's War on DVD. On completion of our work, we decided to have a 1940's theme day on 14th June. We dressed up in old fashioned clothes and took a class photograph. We sang three Wartime songs for the other classes in the school. We finished off with a celebration party in our classroom.
