WW2 at Tiverton Museum

On Thursday Year 3 travelled to Tiverton Museum to continue their research into WW2.

The children took part in a variety of workshops including deciding whether to mend, reuse and get rid of old and ripped clothes (skills we would find useful today!). Children also had the chance to listen to Bert, who was evacuated from Plymouth to Tiverton in the war, Bert talked about what it was like to grow up during the war and some of his earliest memories, including carrying a gas mask to school and heading out to the Anderson shelter in the middle of the night. Children also tried powder milk and an omelette made from powder egg, delicious!

Thank you to Tiverton Museum for organising a wonderful day full of interesting and informative workshops!
