Sent to the Country!

The children in year 2 had an exciting Big Bang into the history part of their topic ‘The Homefront’ this week. On Wednesday we visited Cannon Hall where the children were transported back in time to live as Evacuees for the day. The children fully threw themselves into the experience and had a go at a range of activities including rug making, clothes mending, baking with rations, playing World War Two games and learning morse code. The children were able to explore genuine World War Two artefacts and experience first hand what life was really like on the home front. The children soaked up the hands on leading and behaved brilliantly. We are so proud!
