How did Britain help themselves?
By now the children should have an understanding of rationing. So what did we do to help? 'Dig for Victory'
Read the attached PowerPoint which recaps rationing and model how recreational land was changed to allotments during WW2.
After, use this website http://projectbritain.com/farming.html to see what grows in the UK and particularly the South West followed by https://www.thompson-morgan.com/what-to-sow-and-grow-in-november.

We will be making this allotment in school during December.

What is rationing? What caused rationing to take place during WW2? Why did rationing last 14 years? What resources were rationed? Which countries were involved?

We are looking at the different lifestyles children would experience based on the geographic location. First, use the images attached (resource 8 and 9) to compare rural and urban life. What differences are there between the two locations? After, use the links below to understand what life was like for an evacuee. Children to write a diary entry on their journey from city to countryside looking at the view from the train. Include comparisons of human and physical features and reflect on changes to colours, emotions etc.
Instead of a diary, you may want to create a non-chronological report using PowerPoint in line with our lessons in computing.
The children have been working hard to identify Hitler's key targets during the Blitz. We now look at how the children escaped the war both in the UK and Germany.
First watch the video of changes to Europe during WW2. Then complete the map of where children were sent to their host families. Lastly, create a non-chronological report based on these questions:
What was the Kindertransport?
Which countries were children evacuated from?
How were the children evacuated?
Where were the children sent to?
What impact did evacuation have on the children?
When were the children sent home?
