Today we are thinking about our local area and how it was affected during World War II. Look at the 'Photos of Long Eaton in the 1940's'  this is a powerpoint, with the first slide showing information about which UK cities were most affected by bombing.  Do you think that Long Eaton would have been a target for German bombers? 

Long Eaton was a relatively safe place because at the time it was a much smaller town than today. In fact, Long Eaton welcomed a lot evacuted children from London, as it was a quiet and rural location. 

How you could prepare for an evacuee coming to live with you? How do you think they would be feeling?  What could you do to put them at ease and welcome them?  Watch The Lion & The Unicorn to remind yourself of Lenny’s experience.

What do you think they would consider to be different from their home? What would you show them?  What preparations could you make to your home to welcome your guest? 

Remember that in those days life would have been very different – eg no play stations, devices or tv. Although our school wasn’t built at that time, how would you have welcomed them to school?

Write at least 6 sentences explaining how you would welcome an evacuee to your home in the 1940's.
