Year 6: World War II Day

Year 6 dressed as evacuees, army officers, land girls and other characters to learn about life during World War II.

Throughout the day the children took part in a carousel of activities which included wartime cookery, writing postcards home, drawing gas mask boxes and experiencing some 1940s tunes. Our whistle-stop journey through the era finished with a VE Day celebration where the children were able to sample wartime treats baked with their own fair hands - bread pudding, carrot cookies and cheese whirls - accompanied with a sing-song and signed performance of Vera Lynn's 'We'll Meet Again'.

Thank you parents for providing such fantastic costumes, helping our pupils gain a greater understanding of what life was like in wartime Britain.
