    Go to http://www.bbc.co.uk/learningzone/clips/
    Select Primary - Browse - enter 1940s into the search box and you'll find some useful video clips.
    Do the same again but this time enter 1960s into the search box and you'll find useful clips for that period too.
    This website has some interesting information:
    Again type 1940s and then 1960s into the search box to see all that it has.
    Try looking here too:
  2. Thanks for your help. I have ideas on subjects to link, I just don't know whether to do the 40s first and then go on to the 60s or mix them. Hard when you are starting out. Unfortunately, there arent many plans already on here to look through. I am upper ks2

    You could take one aspect at a time and look at it during both periods - homelife in the 40s compared with homelife in the 60s, fashion in the 40s compared with fashion in the 60s etc. Otherwise if you do the 40s first when you come to do the 60s (and your title is to compare) then you would have to keep referring back - easier to do a section at a time for both.
  4. Great idea thanks... will definitely do that when it comes to the planning and just look at some aspects of the war separately. Thanks for your help :)

    When you are doing about WW2 you could compare how people's attitudes towards war were very different in the 60s - the rise of organisations such as CND for instance.
