DETAILS OF OUR WW2 BLITZ WORKSHOPS

If you like the look of our Victorian Inventions workshop, then you may also be interested in our Second World War 'Blitz' Air Raid Warden workshop, which  allows pupils to explore the life of men, women and children on the British Home Front in WW2.

 

Using the same artefacts-based structure as the Victorian workshop, the pupils are able to explore a vast range of genuine WW2 items, followed by fun interactive activities tailored to each particular workshop theme.  For example, they are able to blackout windows to the cry of "put that light out Nelly!", use a real stirrup pump to put out pretend fires, use a genuine telegraph set (the same featured in this workshop) as well as bandaging each other up with instructions followed from a real WW2 first aid instruction book.
