Project Description

Key Stage 2

2.5 hours

Approx. 30 children

City Art Gallery and Museum

£130

Using objects, historical sources, stories and role play our aim is to bring the Home Front alive! (Led by Paul Harding from the re-enactment group ‘Discover History’).

The children will be transported back to war time Britain. They will take on the role of the Civil Defence – an ARP Warden, a Land Army Girl and a member of the Home Guard! The children will be immersed in the daily activities and drills, and respond to a major bomb hit at the Meco Works, Bromyard Road, Worcester!

Other activities include: ‘Pack a Parcel’ (an insight to rationing and POW status) and ‘War Work’ (Worcestershire war time memories, photographs and objects).
