World War II Project:

We are continuing to learn about World War II. We have set a variety of activities for you to pick from. Some of these activities may take you longer than an afternoon so you don’t have to do them all.

1. Research why the ‘Make do and mend’ campaign was so important. Try and upcycle a piece of your clothing to make it into something new and exciting to wear.

2. Research some of the propaganda posters that were used during the war. Why were they so important? Create a replica of your favourite poster – this can be done in paint, crayon, collage or as a digital piece of art.

3. Research some of Winston Churchills’ famous war time speeches. How do they help to unite and build the morale of the British people?

4. Create your own board game. If you like, this could be based on WW2 – the events that happened during the war may cause players to move forward or back spaces. Play the game you created with a member of your family.

Remember to send us photos of your work!

 

Have a lovely day.
