Y6 Experience World War II

 

Our Y6s went back to the 1940s to discover what life was like for children during World War II. Children came to school dressed in 1940s clothing and experienced life as an evacuee at the start of the war.  They learnt about how the war started and took part in activities such as stretcher bearing, how to deal with burning matter following air-raids, what it felt and sounded like to be in an Anderson shelter , used manual water pumps which would have been used to put out fires, learnt about spies and heard a real air raid siren (so did the rest of the school!).   Take a look at what they got up to!
