On Friday, Class of 2009 went to Eden Camp. A museum dedicated to Military history from 1914 onward. The children began the day by taking part in a memorial service with 4 other schools to remember the lives lost in conflict, where they held a minutes silence and laid Poppy crosses with the members of Bomb Disposal Squadron’s names on.

The rest of the day was spent exploring the huts that contained lots of interesting information about World War 2 and other conflicts that have effected Britain.We went through huts that looked at how World War two started; rationing, The Blitz (although a few us found this too dark!); what it would be like to be inside a submarine; the Roles of the Home Guard and the Women during WW2; air raid shelters and air raids; evacuation of children and the type of entertainment that people would have had, among lots of other things.
