Year 6 Investigate Historical Sources – Pearl Harbour

This week we put our historical detective hats on to discover information about an event in the timeline of WWII. We had newspaper articles, maps, pictures, medals, coins, uniforms, ration cards, official army documents and loads more! We discovered that there was a surprise attack on American owned Oahu, Hawaii early in the morning of Sunday 7th December 1941. Toby’s Great Grandma and Grandad were there and we were looking at actual documents kept from around that time. Thank you to Toby’s family for letting us look at them!
