Historical War Artefacts Inspire Year 8 Students

Heath Park’s Year 8 students have recently been studying a topic all about the World at War in History.

The students had the opportunity to handle some genuine historical artefacts from the Second World War. These included a genuine  Air-Raid Precautions (ARP) helmet, a darning mushroom, a blackout lamp, an evacuees case and newspapers and leaflets distributed at the time.

The artefacts really brought history to life and gave everyone a real opportunity to understand more about what life was like on the home-front during the Second World War.
