Doreen’s War: Keep Smiling Through

Updated: May 22, 2020

Our neighbours over at Truetube have been working hard to continue providing great learning resources for our young people over the lockdown period. For their latest film, they were lucky enough to hear from Doreen, who was only 8 years old when WWII began.


In this film, she details to us what life was like as a child during the blitz - as she had to learn to live under some of the same restrictions that children are facing now.


To add to the VE Day fun, Truetube is also providing a downloadable worksheet to go along with the film; aimed at 9-12 year olds, the worksheet is full of stimulating comprehension tasks, with a focus on emotional wellbeing for children through creative literacy. Find it here.
