Rebuilding Britain: The Welfare State

Year 5

Year 6


SKU: H56IL401503

In this lesson, find out all about the wave of optimism that swept a radically different government into power when the war ended, and its vision for rebuilding and modernising Britain. Following this, challenge children to consider why various aspects of the new government’s plans were so appealing to voters, by considering what life had been like before, and during the war. Following this, children may choose one aspect of the plan, such as free healthcare, nationalisation, job creation or universal benefits, as the subject of a persuasive text. Alternatively, why not undertake the alternative activity: a class election!
