Homework Project Ideas & Information The children will be asked to complete a homework project related to their topic of ‘A Child’s War’ and can choose from one of the following options: • Keep a diary and record things that are happening in your life • Talk to friends or family about their wartime or post-war memories or experiences. Write down or record their experiences • Make a scrapbook of Second World War images and write captions for each one. Consider how the people in the photographs may be feeling • Make a gas mask and/or gas mask box • Find out what happened in your local area during the War. Were any children evacuated or did your local area host evacuees • Find some wartime recipes and make one of your preferred choice • Imagine you are an evacuee – you are allowed to take your belongings in a suitcase. What would you take? Fill a shoe box with your chosen items – think carefully! • Imagine a child has been evacuated to your home. How would you make them feel welcome? How could you support them if they were missing their home or family? Which places in your local area would you like to show them? If your child would like to come up with one of their own ideas for their project they are more than welcome to do so. The date for completion is 19th March 2018 and all projects need to be in school by this date please. Parents and the school community will be invited to look at the children’s work and celebrate their successes on Wednesday 21st March 2018 from 2.45pm to 3.25pm in the school hall We look forward to seeing them all.
