Myths and War Evacuees: evacuation during World War II

Please note: this resource pre-dates the 2014 National Curriculum.

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.

This is one a set of Year 6 schemes of work arising from the 2005 KS2-KS3 History Transitions Project.
