Year 6 World War II Workshop

05/10/2018

On Tuesday, Year 6 children all arrived at school looking the part, with fantastic costumes, ready for their World War 2 experience. The Royal Mail kindly funded the morning where two very knowledgeable visitors shared their experiences and artefacts. The children took part in a Home Guard drill, experienced lessons wearing a gas mask and heard first-hand accounts of the German perspective and of course, they got to handle a few historical weapons. A brilliant day was had by all!
