What would a Child Evacuee put into their suitcase when they were going to be evacuated?

 

  • You are going to make a list showing what things a child evacuee would put into their evacuation suitcase and what things they would not put in the suitcase.
  • Look carefully at the images and identify what they are and what they might be made of.
  • Decide if that thing was essential and would definitely have to go in the suitcase                                  or if they would not be able to put that thing in their suitcase.
  • Label each column with the a heading:

L.O. To understand the events surrounding the outbreak of WW2 

 Listen to Neville Chamberlain's speech

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wh2X1dTMFsY

  • “I am speaking to you from the cabinet room at 10 Downing Street. This morning the British ambassador in Berlin handed the German government a final note stating that unless we heard from them by 11 o'clock that they were prepared at once to withdraw their troops from Poland, a state of war would exist between us. I have to tell you now that no such undertaking has been received, and that consequently this country is at war with Germany.”

 This short film offers an overview of the events that led to Britain declaring war on Germany in 1939.
