Week 3 Beginning 20th April
English - Anne Frank
Over the next 2 weeks, our year 6 writing will be focusing on Anne Frank. Anne Frank was a Jewish girl who went into hiding with her family when the Nazis were killing Jews and sending them to concentration camps. Over the two years she was in hiding, Anne wrote a detailed and heartfelt diary. After the war, her father published her diary for the world to learn what it was like for Anne and her family during these times. It has been published in several different languages around the world and has become one of the most famous diaries ever written.
