2. World War Two

2.3 Life On The Home Front


Lesson description

The impact of World War Two was not only felt on the front line, but also by those civilians and families back in Britain. This lesson puts the Home Front under the microscope to look at how people were contributing to the war effort and the reality of the ‘Blitz spirit’.

This lesson contains:

  • A look at the Home Front, how life radically changed for civilians in wartime Britain, and how people, especially young women, were contributing to the war effort.
  • The words and vocabulary required to study the Home Front and war effort during World War Two with confidence.
  • A debate around the popular idea of ‘Blitz spirit’ and how far this idea compared to the reality of living in wartime Britain.
