World War 2 Bus appears in our Playground!

Thursday the 27th of April 2017 saw the unexpected arrival of a vintage double decker bus in our playground. The bus was  a moving museum exploring the Blitz over London during World War 2. Year 5 pupils who are currently learning about the Blitz were greeted on board by actors playing a wartime shop keeper, a resident of a 1940's home and an ARP patrol officer. They were able to experience being inside an air raid shelter during a bombing raid, visit a WW2 living room and see just how little they could purchase during rationing! How exciting!
