Kent Life Trip May 2015

Year 4 set off to the Kent Life Museum in Maidstone dressed to the nines!  Some of the children were dressed as evacuees while others were in uniform.  The coach driver was very confused and more so when they launched into wartime songs!  A wonderful rendition of White Cliffs of Dover and We'll Meet Again made the journey pass quickly.
 
When we arrived at the museum we had two workshops before lunch - drill training with the Home Guard; and an interview by the evacuee billeting officer where Mrs Curling was very upset to discover that she was to be evacuated along with her class!  After munch in the village hall we explored a World War II house and then completed a workshop with the Air Raid Warden and concluded our day learning about wartime rationing and food.
 
The journey back to school was much quieter with tired but happy passengers.
 
All in all, a very successful trip with a huge amount of learning concluding our very exciting topic of World War II.
