St. Paul’s C of E Primary School

A Blitz Experience

On Wednesday Year 6 were taken back in time to the Blitz. 

On Wednesday this week, Year 6 were treated to a reconstruction on the Blitz. Using sounds and lighting effects, Year 6 were taken down into the school cellar so they could experience what it really felt like to be in an air-raid. Some of Year 6 commented on how realistic it all seemed. The experience really helped them to understand how people at the time would have felt when the siren first went off and then what it felt like to be surrounded by explosions and the noise of planes. Later this week, Year 6 will use the reconstruction to write a diary.
