This KS2 pack is for the history topic to teach the key features of the period in British history during World War II for children. The PowerPoints and activities will encourage children's use of subject specific vocabulary, develop chronological awareness and help KS2 children use and apply higher order thinking skills. All the history resources focus on the many important key aspects of life during the war years and will prompt children to ask and answer questions. The history pack can also be used for assessment at the beginning and/or end of the topic. A great teaching resource for primary KS2 children learning the World War II history topic!
A 53-slide informative, PowerPoint about World War II
A 9- slide PowerPoint about Evacuees + writing frames for letter writing
2 differentiated booklets - Britain during the Blitz to use for report writing
Ideas for activities to promote higher order thinking skills
Ideas for topic-related home learning activities
This is a super resource which will aid presentation of the topic. When I used it with my Y% class there was literally an explosion of questions about the subject content. I have also used part of it as a base for a class display. The themes which the presentation picks up are very relevant for cross curricular work e.g into literacy (recounts, reports, authors, drama etc.) The ideas for activities are very sound - great value!
