Class 3 had an awesome day at Eden Camp, learning all about life during WW2.
‘Today was an exciting experience and I think I’ve improved my learning!’ Hector learns about how using a periscope kept the U-Boat crew safe from surfacing into danger.
‘Atten…..tion! Soldiers reporting for duty!
The puppet show was very fun, but VERY wet! Class 3 duck for cover.
We investigated what life was like during the Blitz. Joshua, Hannah look concerned as they make their way through the aftermath of bombing.
Fabienne looks frightened too!
Mr Smith’s group duck for cover as a V1 rocket comes crashing to the ground; although Jack looks quite calm!
‘I loved it and want to go again! I got to learn a lot of things and it was very exciting.’ Amelia.
We’re safe in here! Ryan, Matthew & Amelia investigate bomb shelters.
Praying they survive or just tired? Josh & Oliver take a break in an Anderson shelter.
The vehicles were amazing!
Would you take us on, or run away screaming?
We managed to squeeze 8 of us in a single person shelter! A Guiness record?
‘It was like we were actually there, with the terrifying sounds and awful smell of burning…’ Matthew.
‘It makes you realise how terrible war actually was…’ Oliver takes a quiet moment to survey no man’s land.
‘It was frightening when we went in the Blitz and we saw some really good tanks.’ Harriet.
‘I thought it was really fun but really scary in hut 5. The Blitz was frightening because there was a broken water pipe and a hand was moving up and down in the rubble…..it creeped me out! Charli.
‘Going to Eden Camp was great fun and walking through the U-Boat was scary because it was really dark! Libby.
‘It was brilliant! The best bit was looking at the clothing and the badges…that was really interesting. Hannah’s group break the record and fit 10 children in a one person shelter!
