Year 6 jumped straight into their new big question, ‘Is war ever just?’ with an immersion day where the children became evacuees for the day.

Armed with their paper tags, they spent a morning experiencing teamwork when building their own Anderson Shelter, communicating via Morse Code and creating artwork inspired by the Blitz.

In the afternoon, we were privileged to welcome Kat from West End in Schools who delivered an inspiring poetry workshop – children were introduced to propaganda in the form of poetry and performed 3 poems using voice and actions.

One pupil said, “I loved being able to show the emotion of the soldiers talked about in the poems and to display how their lives suddenly changed thanks to the reality of war.”
