This morning, Year 6 visited the World War II gallery at the Imperial War Museum as part of our History learning. It was so interesting to see such an enormous selection of artefacts that really brought our learning to life.

From Enigma machines, to tanks, to air raid shelters and propaganda posters, we saw so much that reminded us of what we had heard and read about in our History lessons and we couldn’t wait to find out more.

Many thanks to all of the parents who accompanied us. We really appreciate your support.

Year 6: Can you share your favourite artefacts and what you learned about them. Why are they your favourites?

    I had such a fun time in the IWM . I Found out so many new facts . For example Elephants were Used in India WW2. Also in Asia The Wounded soldiers were used by a wood carrier to be brought to a safe area it was like a helicopter. I also learnt that In the Holocaust there would be a guy who decides who lives or dies . Also Winston Churchill wasn’t the politest guy! 😯
