How was propaganda used during WW2?
We have been exploring the concept of propaganda and how it was used effectively during WW2.
‘How did Britain stand firm against the Germans?’
That was the question we were tasked with thinking about. We worked in groups to read some clues and then had to try and match them to the event from WW2. The events were all important reasons that helped Britain to stand firm against the German army.
Georgina brought in some wonderful WW2 artefacts belonging to her family to share with us. She showed us some medals belonging to her Great, Great Uncle and Great Grandad. She also showed us a telegram that had been sent about her GG Uncle who had been lost in action in the war but then later found in hospital with a leg injury. The telegram showed he was being discharged from the army in 1944.
Beech class had a super trip to Chorley Library this afternoon to take part in a local history workshop. We visited different stations around the room and explored some interesting pictures of Chorley Market, found out about people who came to Chorley on Windrush as well as exploring an old map of Chorley from 1930.
Line of enquiry- ‘How long ago was World War 2?’
We worked in groups to explore the chronology of World War 2. We placed different periods of History onto the correct place on the timeline, including periods we have studied before. We then tried to work out where World War 2 would fit in on the timeline. As a group we had to consider:
• What else was going on at the time of World War 2?
• How does it relate to WW1? Is it a significant period of history?
• What came before it? What came after?
• How long ago are we talking about? What was the duration of the war?
• What other observations can you make about the timeline?
Line of Enquiry- Why was it necessary for children to be evacuated?
