Travelling Back in Time to World War II

Year 5 and 6 travel back in time to World War II


The years rolled back as Year 5 and 6 entered school on 13th February 1940 for a World War II day.  Year 5 and 6 dressed in 1940s clothes, brought rations for their lunches instead of a hot school meal, carried their gas mask cases throughout the day and took cover during air raid sirens.  Class teacher Mrs Hewitt, unrecognisable as a 1940s school mistress, taught lessons from wartime throughout the day, and the ladies from Rowsley Craft Club visited school for a ‘make do and mend’ session.  This was a truly wonderful day that brought the spirit of wartime and the class topic alive.
