World War II Bus visit

On Wednesday 10th December a double decker bus came to the Secondary phase. The Home Front Bus company provided an exciting experience to see a bombed out street inside the bus on the top deck and experience all the sounds and smells of being inside an air-raid shelter. On the bottom deck the bus was transformed into a life-like 1940s Living Room which featured a wireless and a range of original gas masks. At the back of the bus the students found a Grocery Shop and could see first hand the amount expected for Ration portions. While enjoying this experience the students moved onto making Anderson Shelters and Gas Mask boxes throughout the day.
