Callum’s blog about WWII


In Y5 we wrote a letter home based on the movie Goodnight Mister Tom. We wrote a letter to William’s mum. We also had a visitor come in to show us items they used in the War and what they still use today. He brought a mannequin in and showed us the clothes the army wear. He showed us a gramophone that plays records. We dressed up as Evacuees, even the teachers! We had Ration Book’s on us. The whole day was about WWII. We learnt about how Evacuees act and how they are feeling, we wrote sentences about how they are feeling and we had to include modal verbs.

Miss Hamlyn teaches us, she’s the best. WWII Started in 1939 and ended in 1945. The British had a plane called Spitfire they used it in the War. The movie Goodnight Mister Tom is based on war. A boy called William got evacuated from London and came to the countryside (It’s the safest place). He was dropped off at Mister Tom’s house he is a grumpy man. He had a son and wife, his wife died. The children were evacuated from their homes and some children were split up from their siblings. The reason why they had to evacuate to the countryside is because there are less people there. To stay safe from bombs they stayed in Anderson Shelters. Some parents died and some didn’t. The men went to war while the ladies did the house work, like washing the dishes, and cleaning up. Jessica’s uncle (David) was a medic.
