This week we have been learning about the evacuation of Dunkirk. What happended, is the Germans, who were our enemy, were winning the Battle of France and forced our troops to retreat to the beach at Dunkirk. They were trapped there for 9 DAYS!!!!!!! But luckily, the prime minister sent ships and fishing boats out to sea to save as many of our troops as possible. It was first said that 48000 men would be safely returned . However, we happened to have rescued 338,226 men.
Today, which is Friday, we had Pudsey day!!!! For Pudsey day all of Year 6 were allowed to have a stall each for KS2 to have a go at. 6Y's stall was 'how many marbles you can get into a bowl' - using a spoon and one hand! However many marbles dropped off the spoon and did not go into the bowl, was taken off your total. Whoever got the most marbles WON! 6P stall was guess the name of the teddy bear. I bet u know what that is!! The winner wins two packets of sweets! 6C was, guess the weight of the cake! Today was really fun!!!!
