World War 2 Day

October 2021                                                                                                                                                

To celebrate nearing the end our World War II topic, Year 6 enjoyed an experiential day where they participated in a range of exciting activities. These included baking honey cakes with rationed ingredients, creating replica paper spitfires, embroidering individual pieces of fabric to create our celebratory bunting, writing radio broadcasts, using telegrams, thinking about what we might take in an evacuee’s suitcase and translating Morse code messages. In the afternoon, we had lots of fun looking at an amazing Jeep from 1945 and feeling how heavy army equipment was before sampling our delicious jam sandwiches and honey cakes. Thank you so much to our parent volunteers for helping out!
