Today we started a new unit on WW2 in 3e with a story of the Blitz and how it affected the British.
Thousands and thousands of houses were destroyed in London, 3.5 million people were evacuated from big cities and over 40,000 civilians were killed between September 1940 and May 1941.
On the night of 29th Dec, 1940 100,000 bombs were dropped on London, that is 30 bombs per minute !
When he became Prime Minister in May 1940, Winston Churchill said : "I have nothing to offer you but blood, toil, tears and sweat". He was right, the war was very difficult for the British but they resisted.
The beginning of Narnia is a perfect introduction to this theme. Watch and enjoy !
