Location – PICKFORD’S HOUSE
Pupils will experience what it was like to shelter in the Pickford’s House cellar during a World War II air raid attack. Our costumed ARP Warden will train your pupils to deal with gas attacks and incendiary bombs. There will also be the chance to explore the causes and effects of rationing on people’s lives during WWII. After WWII, Britain would never be the same again!
OPTIONAL MAKE AND TAKE
Your pupils will have the opportunity to make a model of an Anderson Shelter to take away.
From the National curriculum Key stage 2: History
“Pupils should continue to develop a chronologically secure knowledge and understanding of British, local and world history, establishing clear narratives within and across the periods they study. They should note connections, contrasts and trends over time and develop the appropriate use of historical terms”.
“Pupils should be taught about a significant turning point in British history, for example the first railways or the Battle of Britain”.
