Children during World War II
In KS2 history children will be taught about what life was like in Britain for children at different times in history. This is the first of two quizzes on that subject and it looks at life for children, including evacuees, during World War Two.
Many children during World War Two became evacuees. The evacuation of British children was known as Operation Pied Piper and began on the 1st of September 1939. Children, thought to be at risk from German air raids, were removed from Britain's cities an relocated in the countryside. It officially relocated more than 3.5 million people - 3 million of them in the first four days. Most had no idea of where they were going, let alone when they would be coming back. But those who stayed in the cities were at risk from German bombs and also faced a shortage of food, clothes and even toys.
