Travel back in time to World War 2 to experience life in Germany and the impact the war had on so many people at that time, including a young girl named Anne Frank. 

The war began when the UK and France declared war on Germany. This was after German troops led by Adolf Hitler had invaded Poland on 1 September 1939 to claim land there as their own. Austria and Czechoslovakia had already been invaded by Hitler. His plan to invade Poland was  take more land for Germany.

Remember you should be reading your reading book as much as you can (every night) however you can also record when you read for pleasure in class or at home. Your parent/guardian needs to sign your book before it is changed. It is important that you bring your reading book and record in every day as we will hear you read in the morning.
