Year 6: How did propaganda influence behaviour during World War II?

As historians, we have been looking at propaganda posters produced during World War II.

We worked out who the intended audience was, and how the words and images would evoke an emotional response in different sections of society. This was so that they would be more likely to behave in the way that the Government wanted them to, whether that be mothers from big cities sending their children to live with others in the country, women going to work in factories or on farms, or growing your own veg!

Then we created our own posters to persuade the British population to help the war effort in different ways.
