The rest of lesson and activities focus on what happened and why the RAF won. For more information, please refer to the preview slides.

End of WW2

End of WW2

This lesson considers why the Nazis lost WW2 and what the longer-term results were for the post-war world. The starter is a memory recall using the bunker scenes from the film Downfall. This also asks the students to make inferences. Students then use their prior knowledge of the events of WW2 to explain why the Nazis ultimately lost. Using the information provided, students analyse ways in which the post-war world improved as opposed to continuing problems. They then end with a consideration of the merits of just revenge versus forgiveness using the example of the Holocaust survivor who forgave the doctor who experimented upon her as a stimulus for discussion.

Should the US have dropped the A-bomb?

Should the US have dropped the A-bomb?

Two lessons which firstly consider why the US took the decision to drop the A-bomb and then whether they should have done it. The first lesson introduces Hiroshima and Nagasaki by considering a series of mystery images. Students then learn the key facts using sources and video footage. They then complete a source-based activity analysing possible reasons for dropping the bomb. There are three versions of this activity including a more detailed G&T version and an SEN colour-coding version. The second lesson evaluates whether the USA should have dropped the bomb by considering a range of arguments both for and against. This leads into a final hot-seating activity whereby a panel of representatives from the US government defend their actions against the critical journalists.

Churchill: great war leader?

Churchill: great war leader?

This lesson analyses the reasons why Churchill was such a great war leader. The starter asks students to consider a range of fabulous Churchill quotes and select their favourites and consider those which would be the most motivating in war time. Having established the popular view of Churchill, students then analyse factual information about the leader, categorising this into evidence that he both was and was not a great leader (the point being that he was not perfect). Students then listen to the famous “Fight them on the beaches” speech an annotate their own copy to appreciate the techniques at play. Using this knowledge, they then write their own motivational speech in the style of Churchill.

Was Blitz Spirit real? The British home front

Was Blitz Spirit real? The British home front

This lesson uses contemporary sources, including photographs, news reel and written accounts to investigate the Blitz and whether “Blitz Spirit” was real or simply an example of propaganda. In the starter, students contrast images of “Blitz Spirit” with an account of the true horror of the Blitz. They consider the propaganda content of a British news reel clip. Students then complete a card sort activity by placing sources in a line to consider those which support the idea of “Blitz Spirit” and those which discredit it. They can then write-up their overall verdict. The home work activity asks students to study a range of WW2 images, considering which they would censor and which they would publish.

WW2 Rationing Carrot Cookie Recipe

WW2 Rationing Carrot Cookie Recipe

An easy to follow recipe for carrot cookies using ingredients that would have been available during WW2 when rationing was happening. The recipe is true to original recipes that people used at the time and is a fantastic way to link History with cookery/DT/food technology and bring rationing to life for the children. We did this in small groups and each child got to taste their cookie once it was cooked. They are surprisingly delicious!

Loss and Blame in the Holocaust

Loss and Blame in the Holocaust

This lesson explores who is to blame for the Shoah/Holocaust. It endeavours to introduce nuance and deeper empathy into students’ understanding in that the Shoah cannot simply be Hitler’s fault: millions of people collaborated, agreed and perpetuated anti-semitism, including some Jews in the Ghettos who faced making impossible decisions in desperate circumstances. Activities are differentiated, with youtube videos of survivors testimonies (which are a little quiet), and the lesson is perfect for religious studies, PHSE, citizenship and SMSC. It’s perhaps a bit personal for a history lesson, but may be used to augment existing scheme’s of work to help engagement. Learning Questions include: Can I describe the different things that were lost in the Holocaust? (level 4-5) Can I explain my opinion on who was responsible for different things in the Holocaust? (5-6) Can I evaluate different opinions on who was to blame in specific situations? (level 6-7) There are also extension tasks which include footage of Otto Frank after his loss of his entire family. All feedback gratefully received.
