Evacuation during WWII - perfect for cover
Lesson could form part of the study of the Home Front during WWII, with focus on the topic of Evacuation and the experience of three evacuees. Simple introduction to the reasons behind evacuation with an accessible main activity that focuses on literacy and independent working. Would be perfect for a cover lesson, and the A3 sheet has two creative extension activities on the back. The Ppt also contains a link to a video of inner-city London Primary school students reading the letters of evacuee children of matching ages, which could prompt a discussion about how young people in our society would cope (better or worse?) with evacuation. Extension letter writing activity is also included on Ppt.
