Year 6 had a wonderful 1940’s experience at the Lincolnsfield Centre before the Easter holidays. Groups enjoyed the ‘school room’ and learnt about how behaviour was managed during this time, as well as learning about the evacuation process and how people managed to stay safe in Anderson Shelters. Another fun session was learning about rationing and how this affected what people ate and grew themselves – visiting the ‘Dig for Victory’ garden was a real eye-opener! The pupils saw London being ‘bombed’ and the damage it caused, they also met a real-life WWII War Veteran who fought and survived several battles. He helped the children to understand the terror and devastation that was caused by using replica war pieces as well as authentic artefacts from that period. A thoroughly enjoyable and educational experience!
