As part of our history topic ‘World War 2’, the children recently experienced visiting Armley Mills to take part in workshops as though they were evacuees. The children really looked the part as they were dressed in 1940’s clothing. The children were able to take part in a WW2 classroom role play with their new teacher ‘Miss Green’. They learnt what to do if there was a siren and where they would be travelling to as evacuees.
In the afternoon, the children then took part in a home-front workshop where they learnt all about everyday life during the war, including rations and how to wash their clothes. The children really enjoyed this visit and learnt lots from it.
