22.11.16 - World War II Day

Who said time travel was impossible? A group of our Year 6 pupils turned the clock back to 1940s wartime Britain when the radiogram ruled and long before colour TV, mobile phones and the internet!

The hands on history day was organised by members of our highly creative History Department. Children took part in a rich variety of wartime activities and roles. They made gas masks, acted as billeting officers, took part in a photo shoot as 1940’s movie stars and ended the day with a lively and very enjoyable street party.

Our very own historian Mrs Ward said: “The children really enjoyed themselves and I am extremely pleased with how well they settled in to 1940’s life. I’m a big fan of practical learning. It enriches the experience and makes learning more memorable and enjoyable. The children were really engaged and asked lots of questions. I’m certain that the day bettered their understanding of wartime Britain and their appreciation of how lucky we are today. Simply a day to remember!”
