World War 2 Radio is highly engaging project for KS2 children. They make a radio programme as though it was a live broadcast in the second world war.
The project comes in different formats to suit all schools. Some like to do it all in a day with one class, whilst for others it is a week long project for all of KS2, and everything in between.
This schedule below gives an idea of a one-day project.
