Focus: World War Two – Explore what life was life for people in Britain in World war two.

This week focuses on the start of the war and what life was like for evacuees.

 

Activity:

Today using information you have read and watched this week, you are going to write a short story about a child being evacuated in World War Two. You could write this in your books, on Purple Mash or on a Word document. If you use a word document email this to me then I can read your work and we can add it to the class web page for everyone to see yes.

 

Use the following plot structure to help with your story:

 

Section 1 – The announcement of war – open your story with your character hearing the news that Britain is at War. Where are they and who are they with? How do they feel? How do others in the family feel?

 

Section 2 – Evacuation – Your next section could be your character hearing the news that they are to be evacuated, packing their belongings and waving goodbye to their family.

 

Section 3 – Arriving at the countryside – Your next section may be describing your character’s arrival in the countryside being collected by the billeting officer and taken to their new ‘Home’. Think about describing the setting of the countryside compared to their life in the city and describing your character’s emotions throughout this scene.

 

Section 4 – Settling into a new home – End your short story by describing what your characters new home is like. How are they settling in? Do they like the household they have been taken to?

 

Don’t forget to check though your work looking to up level, and correcting punctuation.
