Summer Learning Journey Week Two Making a Fashion Statement

The outfits that people wore in the late 1940s are very different to the outfits we wear now. Women wearing hats and gloves in their day to day outfits men wearing hats and suits all day. I would prefer the outfits we wear today. The outfits they wore back then must of gotten hot with all the layers of clothes. But that is just my opinion.

Summer Learning Journey Week Two VE Day!

If it was me I would invite my family over. We can run around and jump on the trampoline. We would eat hamburgers, sausages, patsies, ribs and chops. We would probably go to the park and play touch or ride our bikes. Then at night we would roast marshmallows and put them in the middle of chocolate biscuits.

Summer Learning Journey Week Two Women at Work

One day I was walking along the deck of the ship when I hear a loud bang. I start to run as I see smoke coming from the far end of the ship. I run towards the room where your patients are waiting to receive treatment from the doctor. Just as I arrive at the door to their room I hear another loud bang and I turn slowly around. I see man laying down in a pool of blood I recognised him. It was Benjamin we where childhood friends I started to cry. I went inside and grabbed a first ad kit. I ran to him as fast as I could. I went on my knees I was shaking him and saying "wake up, wake up!" he was died. I held him by the shoulders and dragged him the room where the patients where. I could hear something from out side I looked through the window. "BANG!" I blacked out and woke up in the Hospital. I was in a coma for two years Benjamin already had his funeral. It's hard living life without Benjamin.

Summer Learning Journey Week Two: A Call to Arms

Lloyd Trigg is the only serviceman to have been awarded the VC on the ‘recommendation’ of an enemy. Despite being hit repeatedly by anti-aircraft fire, Trigg pressed home his attack and fatally damaged the German submarine with depth charges.His crippled Liberator then crashed into the sea with the loss of all eight crew. German survivors praised Trigg’s courage after they were picked up by an Allied ship. Their evidence was instrumental in the New Zealander being awarded a posthumous VC.

Summer Learning Journey Week Two An Eventful Experience

By the mid-1939, Japan and China had already been engaged in full-scale war for nearly two years. The city of Tianjin had been captured by Japanese forces on 30 Jul 1937, but the Japanese Army had avoided the foreign concessions in order to prevent diplomatic complications. On 9 Apr 1939, a Chinese-national who was a manager and a customs official for the Japanese-controlled Federal Reserve Bank of North China, a man considered to be a collaborationist, was assassinated by Chinese resistance fighters at the Grand Theater. The Japanese soon named six Chinese men as the killers, and announced that they were hiding in the British concession. The Japanese Army demanded them to be handed over, and the British police complied, though asking the Japanese not to torture them and to return them in five days. Ignoring the first part of the agreement, the Japanese tortured the four men that the British police turned over, getting two of them to confess. Five days later, the Japanese returned the four men to the British concession as promised.
