What was life really like for children and adults in World War Two? To have to cope not only with the rationing and evacuee programmes, but also the Blitz, the Battle of Britain and the threat of invasion? To live in a time when sticking together and standing strong was not only expected but essential?
Find out now in our exciting, interactive WW2 workshop delivered direct to your school and tailored perfectly to both the current creative curriculum and also the new 2014 National Curriculum for History.
Planned and delivered by an experienced QTS teacher, our workshop takes pupils back in time to the age of the 'Blitz spirit', planned from the ground up with two main aims in mind. One, to bring your Second World War topic to life in a totally new way and two, to teach towards and to expand upon the topic objectives, so that your pupils will learn above and beyond all your expectations.

Our half day single-class experience begins with the sound of the air raid siren as your class are taken through a simulated WW2 attack, designed to mimic as close as possible the urgency of a real air raid without any of the danger.
This is soon followed by a brief timline summary of WW2 events, leading into a hands-on artefact investigation, with pupils investigating our wide range of genuine WW2 artefacts (such as genuine safe to handle gas masks with replica modern filters) where absolutely everything on display is available to hold and explore.
The second half of the morning is another task from a choice of a) blacking out windows to the tune of "Put that light out Nelly!"; b) bandaging each other up using a genuine WW2 first aid instruction booklet, using c) using a real Morse code machine or d) (fine weather only) putting out pretend (wooden target) 'fires' with a genuine stirrup pump.
