Year 6 - WW2 Day

Date: 13th Jan 2017 @ 4:50pm

Yesterday Year 6 went back in time to the 1940's and experienced a WW2 day. It all began by children heading into the hall to collect their evacuee label and were instructed to sit on a coach to be taken to the countryside.Children were then given only one hour to create their own gas mask before the enemies attacked! An eventful part of the day (well for the staff) was when the children tasted food from WW2 times, let's say the stew was slightly more popular than the sardine paste and the cold mash and jam! The afternoon was spent learning some jive dancing and showcasing them to each other. Unfortunately, this was interrupted by a siren and we were taken to an air raid shelter until it was safe to leave.

Well done to the children for really getting into character and a big thank you to everyone who helped their child look the part, the costumes were great!
