Why not turn your class into an Anderson Shelter to give a real cross-curricular sense of what life was like in WW2 Britain.
A safe haven from the bombings and a second home to many. This pack includes items that a typical family may have kept in their shelter. Newspaper articles can provide a great cross-curricular literacy or creative writing opportunity, while artefacts are great for further research and historical enquiry or even role play.

Tins of non-perishable food (powdered egg and milk),
Spare clothing (mittens, balaclava and jumper),
