Something a little bit different!

The Blitz


You may have heard of the term 'The Blitz' before. If you haven't don't panic, you are about to find out lots of information about it now!


The heavy and frequent bombing attacks on London and other cities was known as the 'Blitz'.


Night after night, from September 1940 until May 1941, German bombers attacked British cities, ports and industrial areas.


London was bombed ever day and night, bar one, for 11 weeks. One third of London was destroyed.



Your Task...


We would like you to take some time now to watch the BBC Teach video, which explains the Blitz in more detail.


You should also read through the PowerPoint presentation carefully and make sure you have a good understanding of this period during the Second World War. 


It would be great if you could get someone at home to quiz you on a few of the main aspects of the Blitz, or maybe you could tell them some of the information you have learned.


Make sure you pay attention to the images you see throughout the video and in the PowerPoint- this will be important for an activity later in the week!
