Term 2 - A Child's War

A siren sounds, a building crumbles, a Spitfire zooms overhead. Take cover! It's 1939 and Britain is at war. Deep down in the Anderson shelter, learn why nations are fighting and why child evacuees must make the long journey from their homes and families into unknown territory.

Read the diary of Anne Frank, written whilst hiding from the terrifying stormtroopers in a secret annexe, and try to empathise with her hopes and fears.

Make and do mend - and cook up a family meal from meagre rations. Delve deep into a bygone era, when loose lips sank ships.

And, as peace is declared, let's get ready to celebrate. Mr Churchill says "It's an unconditional surrender!"
