WWII Home Front: The Blitz Experience.

WWII Home Front: The Blitz Experience.

This was graded an 'outstanding' lesson. Hook starter: As pupils enter the room the presentation will display an autonomously moving spot light to reveal a picture clue of the London Blitz to hint about the context of the lesson. Lesson Intention and differentiated outcomes. (SMSC) Video links are included within the presentation. This lesson could be used without the need for exercise books as it is a learning stations based lesson for the most part. I have included 5 stations however these could be less / more dependent upon size and ability of your class. Eg: 1. War time memories / experience of the Blitz. 2. Propaganda posters (Blackout and recruitment to help during air raids). 3. Anderson / Morrision shelters. 4. Text book / war time newspapers 5. Interactive station (War time house / Interactive Air Raid map). Pupil's then consolidate their judgment through answering a structured 8 mark exam style question. If time I then ask my pupils to peer assess with WW / EBI. Instructions and advice on how they lesson is to run can be found in the description of the presentation. (All images and videos / sheets from Google / BBC Bitesize). Many Thanks.

World War Two Home Front: Was the evacuation process a success or a failure?

World War Two Home Front: Was the evacuation process a success or a failure?

Hook starter: As pupils enter the room the presentation will display an autonomously moving spot light to reveal a picture clue of evacuated young people boarding a train to hint about the context of the lesson. Lesson Intention and differentiated outcomes. (SMSC) Video / MP3 sounds clips (with links) are embedded within the presentation. The aim of this lesson is to allow young people to explore and empathise with the evacuated young people during WWII. Pupils begin filling out a tag for themselves (reminiscent of the time) before being asked to write a short blurb about their partner to appeal to a host family. Pupils then pack their suitcase catagorise what they believe boys/girls would have needed to take with them. I then split my pupils up and place them in different areas of the classroom (locations evacuees would have been sent to). The main task involves studying an evidence pack to allow pupils to decide of the evacuation process was a success or failure by the British Government. Pupil's then consolidate watching a short video (embedded) before forming their judgment through answering a structured 8 mark exam style question. If time I then ask my pupils to peer assess with WW / EBI. Instructions and advice on how they lesson is to run can be found in the description of the presentation. Depending upon ability / how through you wish to be this could easily transcend into a two lesson process. Many Thanks.

Are you introducing your students to the toys of the past? I have collected together 30 images of toys which were popular around 200 years ago. The students can see which ones we still play with today, and how toys have changed over time. This pack contains a 31 Teaching Activity Teacher Guide using these photo flash cards. These activities are quick and fun to do and will improve both your students' memory and vocabulary skills. You could look at it directly as a presentation and discuss the different materials being shown in each of photos. You could print off and laminate the photos to make an interesting, eye-catching display about toys from the past. The students could also take the laminated photos and sort them into different sorts of toys. The students can then discuss how they decided on each you would be used. The photos could also be used as prompts for creative writing.
