The Battle of Britain, 1940

The Battle of Britain, 1940

This outstanding lesson on why the RAF won the Battle of Britain, was amongst one of our most popular downloads we had schoollhistory.co.uk and has been tried, tested and fine tuned over many years. This newer version has been fully updated with a wider range of tasks and activities to suit the modern classroom, but if you would still like to use the classic version, then I have also included it as a PDF file. These resources are suitable for the full ability range and include a wide range of differentiated activities.

With the exception of the classic version, all the worksheets have been supplied in Microsoft Word. The lesson begins by looking at the military situation in 1940 and gets students to analyse why Germany decided to invade and the challenges that they would face trying to cross the English Channel. This is followed up by another activity which gets students to listen to Churchill’s famous ‘we will fight them on the beaches’ speech and to assess why it was made in Parliament and broadcast to the nation. The rest of lesson and activities focus on what happened and why the RAF won. For more information, please refer to the preview slides. The aims and objectives of the lesson are: Theme: The Second World War Know: Why did Germany try and invade Britain during the summer of 1940? Understand: Why did the RAF win the Battle of Britain? Evaluate: How important was the role of technology in the German defeat? Skills: Source Analysis, Cause, Consequence & Collaboration WILF – What Am I Looking For?
