We’ll meet again - A

WWII experience at Steam Museum

On Thursday, Avebury class travelled back in time to the Swindon Steam Museum. We dressed as WWII evacuees complete with gas mask boxes that we made ourselves using our maths skills. The day saw us experiencing a public air-raid shelter, being evacuated to the country, learning about women’s roles in the war and how the railways were crucial to the war effort. The children impressed the staff and volunteers at the museum with their enthusiasm and knowledge.

  A huge thank you to the parents for putting together such amazing costumes and to Mr Gyllenspetz for leading the trip, Mrs Andrew and Mrs Heath for their help as well. As always, the children were impeccably behaved and lived the school values perfectly.
