In English we will be learning about A Child’s War and life in Manchester during WWII. We will be writing letters about our time during The Blitz. Also, we will research about the remarkable life of Anne Frank before we produce a detailed biography about her.  Then, based on all our learning, we will imagine that we are Anne Frank and write diary entries about our time in the annex.

We will be acting out the play script Bombs and Blackberries, imagining that we were living in Manchester during the Blitz.
