Aliens on the Homefront during WW1

An English and Citizenship Resource that explores the “less known” History of “aliens”- families of German heritage in Britain for example.
A year 6 teacher said: “This project effectively provides opportunities for cross-curricular links creating a stimulus to captivate children and produce high level writing. Through examining World War 1 documents, children were exposed to challenging language which stretched and broadened their vocabulary. This was reflected in extended writing opportunities that were successfully completed after each session.”
It is a truly national resource using primary sources from across the country. Commissioned by Sheffield Hallam University the resource has been successfully trialled in many classrooms for the last 5 years.
