WWII Day -
Year 6

Year 6 immersed themselves during the 1939 Government Evacuation Scheme. They were separated into their different homes to complete tasks set for them. The children were able to make their own garden's to 'Dig for Victory' and build their own shelters. They also designed their own parachutes for their paratroopers to safely land during the Battle of Britain. In the afternoon, the children heard the announcement that the war had ended in 1945 and they began to prepare for a V-E day street party. They made their own flags, bunting and food for their feast. Jam sandwiches, scones and crisps were shared around as they listened to music of the time and celebrated peace at last
