Today in P4 the children travelled back in time to experience World War 2.
When the children arrived in their wonderful outfits they went straight up to the Muga. They went on an imaginary train journey back to the 1940s and when they arrived at their destination, names were called out and the children went into different groups. These groups then walked down into the school building to take part in rationing, evacuation, air raid activities, craft, investigations and baking. They also had the chance to look through our wonderful museum of artefacts, created using items provided by the Council and from many of our own parents, grand parents and great grand parents (THANKYOU ALL SO MUCH!)
For break the pupils also had either ham, jam or cheese sandwiches, wrapped in brown paper, and an apple, just like the children of the 1940s.
The children also got to watch some cartoons that were made in the time of WW2 and had a sing a long with many war-time songs.
The highlight of the day was listening to our guest speaker, who answered numerous questions from our pupils. A huge thankyou to Armagh City, Banbridge, Craigavon Council, to our parent volunteers and to all of our pupils for making this such a fun day.
