Key stage 2 (7-11)

Educational workshop: "A child's life during the Occupation"

The workshops set primary school pupils educational tasks to complement the work done during their visit to the museum. Children are shown a range of objects and documents from the period so they can analyse their meaning, purpose and historical interest.

Pupils learn about the life of a 10-year-old child during the Occupation. Their games, concerns and life as a schoolchild take concrete form with a range of period objects which all pupils can observe and handle.
