Nicky Nook Class – Autumn
This term our topic is “Who do you think you are?” The pupils will be learning about World War 2.
Autumn term project:
Our project this term is to create ‘History in a shoebox’ You can choose which project you complete and it should be handed in by Thursday 1st December.
Imagine you had to fill a shoebox with items to show what your life is like. It may contain a football boot, cinema tickets, a shopping bill or sweet wrappers or photographs.
For your project this term you need to find out what life was like during World War 2. Fill a shoebox with items that represent life during World War 2. You may use primary evidence – people who were alive during these years or their families or secondary evidence – books and the internet. You should be able to tell a partner all about the items in your box and why you have included them.
Research what life was like during World War 2. In a shoebox create a scene that tells the story of what it is like. You may choose to show a kitchen, a shop, an air raid shelter or an idea of your own. Your scene should include a character and you should write a script so that the character can explain what life was like. Make sure all objects you include would have been available in those times.
