WWII Day

Year 4 pupils got a unique insight into the evacuation experiences of children and their families during World War II.

 

During a day trip to Bewdley Museum in Worcestershire, pupils had the opportunity to discover and explore life on the Home Front with the use of original and replica artefacts. This was followed by an experience of the Blitz within the museum’s very own air raid shelter.

 

The day culminated with all the pupils marching across Bewdley bridge and participating in a real life ‘evacuation’ upon a steam train at the Severn Valley Railway. Pupils stopped for some lunch at the picturesque village of Highly and there was even time to play some children’s WWII games before heading home.
