World War 2

 

You have all been doing some brilliant work based around WW2, it hasn't quite been the way we expected our topic to go but you've still done some fantastic work. 

 

This week, we would like you to research gas masks, we learnt a little bit about these during our WW2 launch day.

 

I'd like you to do further research on gas masks & create a poster/leaflet on when were they used? Why were they were used? What were they made from? And any other interesting information you can find out about them. 

 

Following on from this, we'd like you to make a gas mask, below are some instructions on how you could make this gas mask as well as a template for one and a template for a gas mask box, use these if you would like or you can go freehand and get a little bit creative! Please send in pictures of your complete posters/leaflets & gas masks to year6@johnhunt.notts.sch.uk

 

Can't wait to see how you get on!
