WW2 Lesson 1 will help KS2 / KS3 children understand the key events that led Britain and France to declare war on Germany in 1939. Children will be able to describe and explain what happened in the aftermath of WW1 between Germany and the rest of Europe, which eventually led to the outbreak of war.
