World War 2 Immersion Experience

Year 5 and 6 had a fantastic immersive history lesson yesterday!  Each child was given one of various war-time roles - evacuee, government, soldier, factory worker or codebreaker - and worked in teams to fulfill their dictated task... However when the air raid sirens went off they had to hide under the tables before reassuming new roles.  It was an intense and exciting afternoon, which gave everyone - children and  adults alike! - the chance to really experience some of the chaos that living during World War 2 would have caused, and to really get into the topic.
