Year 5 and 6 Visit the 1940's!

Year 5 and 6 Visit the 1940's!

Years 5 and 6 went to The Museum of Cannock Chase to discover more about life on the Home Front during World War II. 

We took part in a mock air raid with some very loud and bossy year 5/6 pupil's ordering us about!  The 1940's room at the museum was opened for us to get a real feel for home life during that time. The drama session, where we dressed up as though we were in the 1940s, was fantastic and really brought life as an evacuee alive.  All pupils took part in the various stages of being evacuated, from being told at school the news up to finding yourself in strange surroundings with either a lovely, kind family or a horrid one being used as cheap labour!

Being able to handle a range of artefacts from the war and work out who they belonged to was also great fun.  It was a fabulous day, which everyone enjoyed.
