Year 6 had a World War II day on Friday. They performed a short play and sang songs about being evacuated in assembly with lots of parents joining us. During the day they build factories and buildings ready to be bombed at a later date!
They weighed out the rations people would have had, sheltered from the air raids under the desks and created their own World War II posters. The children and staff also dressed up in World War II clothes and listened to Vera Lynn and other World War II songs during the day.
The children brought in their projects which included Anderson shelters, Coventry Cathedral, tanks, board games, gas masks, guns and information projects they had researched at home. The children really enjoyed the day and learned a lot about the War.
On Tuesday 11th November year five visited the Herbert Art Gallery and took part in a sculpture workshop. We were given the chance to explore the sculpture gallery and learn about all the techniques associated with sculpture.
