P7 WW2 Propaganda Posters

This term, Primary 7 is learning about WW2. One of the many things we are exploring in this topic is how propaganda was used to influence citizens and encourage rationing, evacuation and enlisting.

P7 pupils studied a variety of posters and discussed what features of persuasion were effectively used in the WW2-era ads. Pupils then designed their own posters, some even taking the challenge of including a modern device to enhance persuasion. For example, one pupil used a modern footballer doing tricks with cabbage to encourage growing your own food, while another used a catchy hashtag as part of her slogan.

Have a look at a few of the finished posters. More will be on display outside the P7 classroom in the coming weeks.
