Last week, Year 2 got to experience life through the eyes of a child in World War 1 by playing a range of exciting wartime games. The children were surprised to learn that factories stopped making toys so that they could make weaponry instead. This got them thinking about the ways they could be imaginative with their games.
The children took part in a carousel of wartime activities where they made their own hopscotch markings and played hopscotch, created their own games using marbles, played blow football, practised writing using chalk and made trenches to re-enact war time scenes using sand and soldiers.
The children learnt that fun can be had with the most basic of equipment. Who needs X-boxes anyway?!
