WW2 Experience Day


WW2 Experience Day


Experience first hand what it would be like to live through Britain’s Home Front during WWII. Set in the historic village of Tattenhall with WW2 landmarks, stories and real life experiences at every turn. This day experience will allow children to learn through an immersive and active series of activities and workshops from the moment they arrive through to when they leave.

Starting with a mock evacuation and including a visit to a to scale Anderson shelter, the day will include opportunities to cover some of the following themes:

• Cooking and Rations

• Search & Rescue including stretcher making and first aid

• Making and flying your very own Horsa Glider on the site used to make them during WW2.

• The role of Tattenhall in WW2 and the impact on the surrounding area.

• What life was like living as an evacuee in WW2.

Desired Outcomes
  • Children will learn about the topic in an authentic WW2 location and discover the changes in pre and post WW2 Britain and how the impact of WW2 affects where and how we live today.
  • Learning from immersive experiences - activities include elements of being active and children will be encouraged to make, create and demonstrate.
