Literacy: The Air Raid

Over to you, Mr Devlin!

Reading Task - The Air Raid.

This activity is linked to our study of the Second World War.

Before you attempt this task, go to our 'Something a little bit different' folder. There you will find a PowerPoint which will give you information about Air Raids by the German Air Force in 1940 and 1941, and the different types of shelter which were built to protect people when the bombs were falling!

Next read the introduction and talk about

what you have learned with someone at home.

Make sure you read the passage carefully

before attempting the 9 questions.

There are two remaining tasks related to this passage on Friday.
