What a thrilling adventure Year 5 had at the Gunpowder Mill Centre on Wednesday! Throughout the day, children were able to have a taste of what life was really like during World War Two.
From the minute they arrived, children were greeted by a number of characters living at that time. Jane Smith, the local ARP Officer, checked that all children had their gas masks and gave them a real life air raid shelter experience. Both classes were also met by Mrs Brown, who welcomed them to her shop and discussed how foods were rationed. Finally, children were put to test by a WAAF Commander who helped them identify a range of aircraft and led a march across the mills!
"There were so many great things to learn about in such a fun way. I loved it!", said Laiba.
"Throughout the day we had to try and find out who was the secret spy. We thought it was Jane Smith - we were right!", said George.
