Year 6 - Portals to the Past WW2 Workshop

This week, year six had the wonderful opportunity to have a WW2 expert visit the school. We had a whole history day to kick off our new unit, which some of us were very excited by. 


Throughout the day, we learning about the history of the war, why events took place and what the knock-on effect of these events were. In the morning, we took part in a WW2 quiz to show off all out newly acquired knowledge, looked at incredible artifacts and even had the chance to become bomb disposable experts. 


In the afternoon, we looked at all the equipment a WW2 solider would use - even the weapons. We understood why and how they were used and then had a chance at trying to break the famous Enigma machine. We all agreed it was a great day.
