Experiencing Life in the 1940’s
Year 5 boys and girls enjoyed a very informative day out at the 1940s Experience in Bushey Hall Hertfordshire. Pupils dressed in clothes of the time and took a rationed packed lunch and their gas mask box!
The group took part in a range of activities with lessons in a 1940's classroom and a tour round a typical house. They also experienced what it was like to be in a brick built shelter during an air raid, giving them the feel for how children in the 1940’s lived.
