Stories from World War 2

To enrich our understanding and learning of what life was like for people during World War Two, we were lucky enough to welcome Mr Pritchard (Yasmin's Grandad) into our school. Mr Pritchard came armed with a wealth of artefacts and real-life stories connected with the war. The children were able to handle these artefacts and listened attentively to the stories. We learnt about 'Joe' and 'Owen' (Mr Pritchard's uncles) who fought for our country. Joe was posted to France and Owen To Burma. Owen returned.... Joe didn't. The children were absolutely amazed that soldiers were sent as far as Burma during the war. Some children
likened this to being evacuated as the soldiers were so young. All pupils were totally captivated and said that 'history had been brought to life!'
