  • National Holocaust Centre Visit

    Published 15/12/23, by Roanna Swales

    UKS2 had a very thought-provoking visit on Monday, to the National Holocaust Centre. It really brought the learning we have been doing in school, about the Holocaust, to life. We experienced what life was like for Leo and his family (who were Jewish) in 1938 Germany, through the 'Leo's Journey' exhibition. We heard about the persecution they faced, which culminated in 'The Night of Broken Glass', also known as 'Kristallnacht'. This then led Leo's mother to send him on the Kindertransport, to Britain.

    In the afternoon, we then heard from a Holocaust survivor, who talked to use, in a pre-recorded video, about their experience of growing up in Germany and how they too travelled on the Kindertransport, to Britain. We also had the chance to ask some questions.

    We ended our visit by spending some time in the Memorial Garden and paying our respects to the 1.5 million children who were murdered, during the Holocaust, by placing a stone onto the ever-growing pile.

    What a moving day we had!

  • WWII Experience Day at Perlethorpe

    Published 22/11/23, by Roanna Swales

    UKS2 have had a fantastic day at Perlethorpe for a WWII Experience Day, as part of our Discover topic for this term: 'What if we lived through WWII?'

    We did an orienteering activity, through which we learnt about some of the planes used during the war; we had a look through the suitcases of some people who had lived during WWII, to find out about their lives; we experienced the billeting process for evacuees; and we also went into an Anderson Shelter - what a wonderful day!
