  • When the War Came

    This resource aligns with the Australian Curriculum: History for Year 10: "The impact of World War II, with particular emphasis on the Australian Home Front"

    By Vashti Farrer

    Sally and her friends live in Kings Cross where there's a constant fear of possible invasion, especially after Japanese mini-subs enter Sydney Harbour! There are rations and restrictions and blackouts and the constant worry of having fathers serving overseas. Even Sal's eccentric Gran can't always cheer her up as she waits for her Dad to come home.

    Vashti Farrer is an author well known for her books for young people and her wonderful historical fiction. This account of the Second World War as viewed through a young Sydney girl's eyes is an accurate, exciting and invaluable record for all youngsters who would like to know about this important period in Australian history.

    Aligns perfectly with the Year 10 history syllabus "The importance of World War 2 with particular emphasis on the home front…"

    This text also supports differentiation of learning by having accessible entry points and multiple exit points. The students can read the text and the teacher can provide opportunities for them to display skills reflective of Blooms Taxonomy.

    Suitable for Upper Primary to mid Secondary. Published by the ANZAC Day Commemoration Committee (Qld) Inc, 2012. Soft cover, 105 photographs, 112 pages. ISBN 978-0-9804480-4-7
