Year 6 World War II Day

November 23, 2012
Year 6 have been studying the lives of children in wartime Britain and on Tuesday they experienced it for themselves during World War II Day. Pupils and staff got into character and dressed in some wonderfully authentic costumes. Gas mask boxes and gas masks were made while the uplifting music of Vera Lynn played in the background. This was interrupted by the terrifying sound of air raid sirens which sent children scurrying under their desks for safety. In the afternoon, pupils followed an authentic World War II recipe to make some delicious carrot cookies. They also tasted 1940's fruit cake and biscuits and compared them with modern day treats! The day was enjoyed by all and pupils gained a greater appreciation of the challenges faced by children during World War II.
