Friend or Foe
Evacuated from London, David and Tucky feel like the war is a long way away from their new life in the countryside. Then one night the skyline of the moor is lit up with gun flashes, and the distant crump of bombing miles away brings the war back to them and shatters their new-found peace. When a German bomber crashes, the boys feel they should hate the airmen inside. But one of them saves David's life . . .
To enhance our children's understanding of World War II and the affects it had on children in our country, we have chosen Friend or Foe as our next text. A beautifully written story based on evacuees from London. This has really helped to shape our children's writing and deepen their thoughts and feelings of this very difficult time.
We are about to begin writing letters to the mother of one of the evacuees in the story.
