Y6 to the Chiltern Open Air Museum

Year 6 had a fantastic day at The Chiltern Open Air Museum, experiencing life as an evacuee. They were all sent to visit Mr Tom and Mrs Brant to find out what life was like, and how they would have helped with all the chores, such as: washing and drying the clothes; polishing brass until it was shiny; scrubbing spuds for dinner and polishing shoes once they had been mended. They also visited the chapel and looked around a typical house from the 1940’s. They were also able to experience school life and what it was like during the Blitz – this was very authentic as they could hear the bombs being dropped around them!
