'With Jesus, we learn as a joyful family and flourish to be the best that we can be'
What a fantastic time we had in the WWII workshop with 'History Alive'!
We started by getting dressed into our outfits, the boys were dressed like their dads in waistcoats, cravats and a flat cap, while the girls were dressed in overdresses and headscarves to protect their clothes.
We looked at different artefacts from a typical WWII house, including irons, baths, kettles, cleaning and kitchen utensils and we even got to smell different soaps from WWII. We talked about rationing and got to explore a real ration book. She even brought a real gas mask!
The children were fantastic and had so many questions to ask. They really got into the role of a child in WWII and have since done a diary entry in the role of a child affected by the war.
Well done Mary class! You were a credit to the school during the workshop, keep up the hard work!
