Following on from the Y6 trip to Normandy last week, Barn Owls are reading and using a book on D-Day for English writing. The book uses testimony from a range of service people and civilians who were involved in D-Day in some way.
Having each studied the story of one of the protagonists, Barn Owls took the hot seat and answered questions from others in the class on their characters' roles in the conflict, and motivations for taking part.
We looked at the way the text is written, using first person extensively, and the text layout. This will then lead to Barn Owls themselves writing on the theme of the conflict.
