Friend or Foe
Michael Morpurgo is our first text based on World War 2...
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 . . .
Class 8 are reading Friend or Foe and particularly thinking about what life would have been like for a child evacuee and how different it would be for a child their age.
