Presentation + Activities: Battle of Britain - Turning Point in History (Plus personification)

A Year 5 or Year 6 history presentation on the Battle of Britain with several tasks suggested as follow-ons/inde tasks. As a bonus, there is an English task at the end. This is an extensively researched slideshow on the Battle of Britain on a PDF. The slideshow includes a choice of follow-on tasks. It contains focussed questions, role play activites, web site addresses for super films, radio clips and other key information eg location of London bomb sites. A full range of WW2 posters is also included. Information on the Blitz is provided to demonstrate how Germany was required to change tactics following the loss of the Battle of Britain and how Britain responded in turn. The Blitz spirit is defined and illustrated by photos for chn to analyse. The pdf ends with a literacy activity - children highlight effective, vivid vocabulary to describe sights, sounds and feelings in a text. Reportage film also uses examples of personification for children to identify. Improve listening skills too! The pfd can be used at the start of a unit on the Battle of Britain and would work well when holding a Theme Day. If you like this resource, please review it. I will then upload units on evacuation, food rationing, clothes rationing, air raids, home and leisure and women in the war. All of these relate to how Britain responded wholesale to the Battle of Britain.
