Our Year 9 boys recently spent a day at the Imperial War Museum.
One of the activities they took part in was ‘documentary challenge’, which involved filming their own mini documentaries in the First World War exhibition. The boys thought the Second World War galleries were really interesting and particularly enjoyed the ‘real life’ experience of what it must have been like to experience a bombing raid during the ‘Blitz’. They ‘hid’ in an Anderson Shelter. Another activity which brought history to life was sitting in a recreation of a 1940s living room. They could listen to the news on the ‘wireless’ and even lay in a Morrison Shelter which was a mattress under a table.
Thank you to all the staff involved in making this a memorable occasion.
