See you soon. Mrs Strange
Put yourself in the shoes of people who heard Neville Chamberlain make his historic announcement, from the radio on 3rd September 1939. Write a diary entry as if you were a person at the time. Listen to the radio announcement again from the link.
You can choose who to write as:
a boy aged 13 or slightly older
a young girl who lives in a city
a man around 18 or 19 years old
a woman with young children
an older man who fought in World War 1
sentences with different tenses - past, present and future
a range of punctuation
spellings from the Year 5/6 list (partnership books)
describe the feelings or things they did or heard
Here is an example I wrote - older woman whose son was killed in World War 1
They said the Great War was 'the war to end all wars'. It felt like a lie then and today the lie unravelled. Chamberlain announced on the wireless that we are at war with Germany. We all just sat there in the church listening. It was a fine day outside in the sun but inside a sort of cloud hung over us. We knew what he'd say, the papers have been full of it. Even though we prayed and hoped - it was inevitable that it would come to war - again. It can't hurt me, I lost more than I could bear in 1916, but all those poor families who will be separated and torn apart. I am too much of a lady to write down what old Mrs Smith called Hitler, I have never heard her so angry - made us all blush! And Mrs Jones dropped her tea cup.
On the green outside, I saw boys holding broom handles and sticks, pretending to be soldiers - marching up and down. Broke my heart.
