Year 4 Blitz Night 2020-The final few hours!

After an eventful few hours the evacuees finally fell asleep on the floor (well on extra thick comfortable mats). Our children were just perfect, including the children that snored during the night and those that insisted on speaking (in their sleep)! We have just added a few more clips and photographs of the night and […]

Year 4 Blitz Night 2020-It’s almost a goodnight from us!

The activities during the evening incorporated many wonderful, exciting and thought provoking learning experiences. This however, would not have been possible without the staff. The children are now relaxing and are ready to watch Goodnight Mr Tom, whilst munching on their handmade rationed carrot cookies and glorious hot chocolate. A really big thank you to […]

Year 4 Blitz Night 2020-War Effort!

A ‘war effort’ refers to the coordination of society’s resources. This takes place to help support a military force resource and are both industrial and human. The children took part and supported by making boxes that could be used for gas masks. How did you make the boxes? Why would they have been important?

Year 4 Blitz Night 2020-Rationing

Rationing is the controlled distribution of scarce resources. Rationing controls the size of the portion that one is allowed on a particular day. The children had access to real ration books. What sorts foods were rationed? What did you make and what ingredients were available?

Year 4 Blitz Night 2020-Games

Children have always had access to games, although the types of games available today may have changed. The children were encouraged to play in groups and individually. During wartime many of the toy factories started to make guns and plane parts, so there was a shortage of new toys. During this time many of the […]

Year 4 Blitz Night 2020-Virtual Reality

The children have been learning about the heavy and frequent attacks on London and other cities including Coventry. The VR learning experience was to help the children to feel part of ‘Blitzkrieg’ (lightning war). Most of the air raids took place at night. One devastating raid on Coventry on 14th November 1940 was the biggest […]

Year 4 Blitz Night 2020-Make and Mend!

Hand repairing clothing became a necessary part of life during wartime. People were encouraged to improve their sewing skills. A report on Public Welfare requested government support for an official ‘Make and Mend’ campaign. What did you mend? How would you feel if the campaign was reintroduced?
