The Important World War Two

By Eleanor Chorlton and Amelia Twelves


People heard about world war two on Sunday 3rd September 1939. Neville Chamberlain , the prime minister, announced that Britain was at war with Germany. Adolf Hitler , leader of the Nazi party , wanted to rule other countries and eventually the world . World war two lasted six years between 1939 to 1945

  • Adolf Hitler was a terrible man . England and France made a promise to Poland that if anyone attacked them we would come to the rescue . Adolf started to invade Poland so Britain fought back. Hitler decided he would go to London to attack. He named the attack `the blitz` short for blitzkrieg which means lightning war. Hitler’s army was called the Nazis. He took their symbol from an Indian symbol meaning peace. No peace with Adolf Hitler around.

The blackout
The Blackout

People painted over their windows and doors so that no one could see the cities . They faked cities by putting lights on the fields so soldiers bombed the fields instead of houses.

Many people were injured due to road accidents falling down stairs and bumping into things.


Evacuees were children who evacuated to the countryside to escape the war. They went on a train to a big hall. A billeting officer ,someone who sorts out which host families the children would go with, called out their names and which host family they were going with. A host family is the family they were going to live while the war proceeded.

R ationing

In world war two people couldn’t just pop to the shop. They wanted to have a fair share of everything . So they invented rationing. Everyone had a ration book with coupons inside for people to pick what they needed from their weekly rations . People had to count up what they needed each week . milk , cheese, butter , chocolate , tea and sweets were all rationed . You only got oranges from other countries as people couldn’t get a lot of food from other countries because of battles at sea they couldn’t get the shipment . Children hardly ever got sweets or chocolate! People also got clothes books [with coupons] and wartime cooking books for mums. along time after the war there still was rationing . OH NO!!!
