Year 6 WW2 Day

14th June 19

On 6 June, Year 6 girls took part in a themed World War Two workshop day. They came to school dressed as a variety of wartime characters including evacuees, army nurses, land girls, soldiers, code breakers to name a few. They had all made such a wonderful effort!

The day started with a factual talk about World War Two in general and tested the girls’ knowledge with a challenging quiz. Next, it was time to look at artifacts about evacuation and food rationing and then play typical WWII children’s games such as jacks, dominoes, pick-up sticks, Happy Families, and cup and ball. After lunch, the girls enjoyed learning about the important wartime code-breakers and put their thinking caps on to decipher some challenging codes. They also had fun planning rationing recipes and analysing propaganda.

The day ended with a very loud rendition of the wartime song, Run Rabbit Run! They certainly had a fun, action-packed day!
