How did children feel?

What did they do?

How have things changed?

WW2 Activities

  • Listen to WW2 radio announcements and watch real video footage from WW2
  • Make a Mickey Mouse gas mask

Parents as Partners

We would ask parents/guardians to discuss family links with WW2 with their children. Visit the war memorial in Ward Park and research information about the war on the internet and in books.

If you know someone who could come into school to share their memories,please let us know.
