Key Stage 2

2.5 hours

Approx. 30 children

City Art Gallery and Museum


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).
