Your class will step back in time to glimpse life as World War II soldiers, exploring some of Essex's wartime sites and take part in training exercises, designed to bring out the best in them.
This day fits well with local history studies and significant local events in the 2014 curriculum, and is an effective team-building experience.
Activities that can be included in your World War II day:
This day is available at Thorndon Country Park and Cudmore Grove, as they have historic wartime features. At Thorndon, children can visit a firing range and bomb crater site. At Cudmore Grove they can explore a pill box.
