This book makes the past come alive in a way that children at KS2 will really be able to relate to. Not only does it tell Hana’s story but that also offers pupils an insight into how historians can piece together evidence from the past. The book makes excellent use of sources, which are photographed and displayed throughout and these could provide an interesting starting point for a class discussion on the value and reliability of sources. Specific National Curriculum links include finding out about ‘events, people and changes from an appropriate range of sources’ and a study of Britain since 1930. See Discussions & Activities.
