TOPIC

This topic explores what it was like during World War II and the impact it had on children their own age. Children will discuss big questions like 'Why did the war happen?' and look at which countries were involved.

Here are some project ideas for you to carry out at home:

  • Make your own gas mask.

  • Research WW2 propaganda posters. Then have a go at creating your own.

  • Do any of your friends or family have connections with the war? What were their experiences of it?

  • Draw a map an evacuee’s journey from London to the countryside.

  • Compare and contrast the differences of an evacuee’s life in London and the countryside.

  • Research the artist Albert Richards and make a fact file or PowerPoint Presentation.

  • Find some WW2 recipes and have a go at making them.

  • Make a PowerPoint Presentation about the WW2 Blitz.

  • Find out what food was rationed and make a WW2 ration book.
