Lesson 1 - Moral Dilemma

Click here and listen to the next part of Friend or Foe. (If you have missed the previous episodes then listen to episode 4 before). 

Stop at 5.23 mins.

David and Tucky are faced with a moral dilemma.

What is a moral dilemma?

What should David and Tucky do?

Activity

Give David and Tucky some advice.

  • What should they do with the German soldiers?
  • Should they help them?
  • Or should they go back and tell Mr Reynolds that they are there?
  • What do you think is the right thing to do?

Write to David and Tucky and tell them what you think they should do in this situation. Make sure you explain why you think this!

Lesson 2 – Write a postcard

What is a postcard? A card for sending a message by post without an envelope. They usually have an illustration or photo on one side. Postcards played a key role in the lives of soldiers during WW2

 

 

Activity 

Today, you are going to plan and write a postcard from the German soldier to his family at home in Germany.

Think about:

  • What key events he might mention?
  • What might he tell his family about?
  • Does he enjoy being a German soldier?

 Organise your ideas using the following ideas:  

  1. Greeting (e.g say hello, how are you? I miss you)
  2. Explain what happened to you ( e.g the plane crash and describe where you ended up)
  3. Explain what could happen now (e.g You met the boys and they might help)
  4. Say goodbye ( e.g Goodbye - hope to get home safe and see you soon).
