Year 6

World War II Day

At the start of October, Year 6 enjoyed a World War 2 experience. The Royal Mail kindly funded the morning where two very knowledgeable visitors shared their experiences and artefacts. The children all looked the part, with fantastic costumes- they 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 exciting weapons!

A brilliant day was had by all!
