A Child's War

A Child's War

A siren sounds, a building crumbles, a spitfire zooms ahead. Take cover! It's 1939 and Britain is at war. Deep down in the Anderson shelter, learn why nations are fighting and why child evacuees take the long journey from their homes and families into unknown territories!


During this topic, the children will enter into the unknown, becoming child evacuees. We will then learn about key events during World War 2, create our own propaganda posters and investigate how our local area was affected by this devastating British event. After learning about morse code, a secret will be discovered and the children will have to create their very own Anderson shelters.


At the end of our topic, we will be celebrating VE day with a 'street' party.
