SPECIAL EVENTS

Year 6 World War II Day

23 February 2012

On Thursday 23rd February Year 6 experienced what life was like on the home front during World War II.

The Day-Star Theatre group came in and put on a production called 'Put That Light Out' which follows a mother of two whose children have been evacuated and whose husband is in the army. They talk about the hardship of life during the war having to deal with rationing, air raids, blackouts, evacuation and growing food.

The children had the chance to dress up as Evacuees, Military personnel, Land Army Girls and much more. All the children dressed up which added to the enjoyment of the experience.
