Choose one or both of our new workshops focusing on British life during the Second World War.
Suitable for Key Stage 2.
£35 per session plus £1.50 museum admission per child (accompanying adults are free).
Learn about what would have been like for the children evacuated during war and the reasons for sending them away. Activities will include writing their name tags and collecting their gas mask boxes to crawling into a Morrison Shelter, playing games and sending a postcard home.
Discover what jobs people did during the war and those who protected us at home both nationally and locally. Children will look at the impact that war had on the everyday activities and material things that we take for granted today. They will also get a chance to go shopping for rations and try wartime food- if they’re feeling brave!
