Scheme of Work 8

Authors: Giles Fullard and Sarah Page (Brampton Junior School). , 13th November 2010

This unit centres on the evacuation of children during the second world war. While the factual knowledge of evacuation is an essential component of the unit, the main focus is on exploring the varied feelings and experiences of children sent to the countryside and a comparison with a film interpretation set in the same period.
