Half Term Project Details and Homework Ideas - A Child's War

 

A siren sounds and a Spitfire zooms overhead! It’s 1939 and Britain is at war. 

 

This half term, we’ll imagine what it was like to be evacuated and live with a family other than our own. Using different source materials, we’ll learn about evacuation and write letters to our families ‘back home’. We’ll plot the Second World War’s events on a timeline and learn about rationing, Pearl Harbour and the Battle of Britain. From a range of maps, we’ll identify safe and dangerous places during the war and make persuasive posters to support the war effort. From a range of sources, we’ll find out about children and school during the war and learn about discrimination that existed at the time. We’ll learn about what it was like during the Blitz and think about how soldiers might have felt.

 

 

Help your child prepare for their project
We’ll meet again! Why not visit a local museum together to investigate how the Second World War affected your local area? You could also read an exciting fiction book set during the war. Alternatively, you could ‘make do and mend’, working together to create a model inspired by the Second World War from recycled materials or unwanted household items.

 

The new projects run for the second half of the autumn term. Homework contributions can be made throughout the half term, please make sure your child brings in something that they have worked on at home.  

Below are some ideas for each project, try one of these or something else project related. 

  • Talk to friends or family about their wartime or post-war memories or experiences. Write down or record their responses. 

  • Make a scrapbook of Second World War images and write captions for each one. Consider how the people in the photographs may be feeling. 

  • Dress up as an evacuated child. Make a gas mask box using brown paper to cover and write an evacuee label showing your name, address and school. Ask someone to take a photograph then print it with a sepia effect to make it look authentic! 

  • Dig for Victory! Find out about the types of vegetables people were encouraged to grow during the War and have a go at growing or cooking some! Popular vegetables included potatoes, cabbage and cauliflowers. The ‘Dig for Victory!’ campaign helped with food shortages during rationing and boosted morale as families became more self-sufficient. 

  • Research the foods which were rationed during the war and find out why! Can you make a meal using only rationed ingredients? 

  • Imagine you are an evacuee: you’re allowed to take just one book with you to your new home. Which one would you take? Conduct a survey amongst family and friends to find out which book they would choose and why. Present your findings to the class. 

  • Imagine a child has been evacuated to your home. How would you make them feel welcome? How could you support them if they were missing their own home or family? Which places in your local area would you like to show them? 

  • Research the countries which took part in WW2. Were they part of the Allies or the Axis? Make a fact file about these countries. 

  • How were propaganda posters used during the war? Research famous posters and slogans and recreate one or even design your own!
