World War II Day

November 17, 2011
Gas masks, rollers, flat caps and headscarves: these were just some of the accessories sported by children and staff as they entered into the spirit of the Blitz for World War II day. Excited Year 6 children welcomed a special visitor, Winston Churchill, who was accompanied by his assistant Wren Robertson. The local historians (David and Pauline Scott) entertained the children throughout the morning with stories of life during the War and fascinating memorabilia from that time. After devouring a non-rationed lunch, the happy historians enjoyed an energetic session learning to dance the Jitterbug. To regain their strength, the children used a wartime recipe to bake delicious carrot cookies. The day was a great success, enabling all the children to develop an understanding of life as a child during World War II.
