On Thursday 8th and Friday 9th, year 5 visited Devon and Exeter Institution library where they enjoyed a workshop based on WW2.
The children were able to explore the library and see some of the features that survived the raids in Exeter during WW2. They also got to look at newspapers from the time of the war and see a book that had been hit by shrapnel. The children even found a secret door!
It was very interesting and a good introduction into our topic. We will be learning more about WW2 this term.
