St John The Baptist Primary School, 2014 - Special Feature
This is a picture special from the latest superb 2-day event (our fifth visit!), to the St John The Baptist Primary School, Spalding, November 2014.
As at Reepham Primary School the week before, the children were able to learn about WW2 surrounded by rare artefacts from the war era. Click any image to see the full picture gallery.
Children learned about the Home Guard and the military history relating to some of the weapons and other items in our collection. Children were able to wear some of the actual WW2 uniforms and helmets, getting a feel for their weight - giving just a glimpse into the uncomfortable life a soldier had during the war.
We would like to thank the children for their behaviour during our visit, and a special thank-you to the staff and parents for making such an effort with the costumes and facial hair!
Many children came dressed up in period costume. There were many moustaches on view, too!
