HARD-hitting lessons about the Second World War came to life when junior schoolchildren re-enacted what their peers in the 1940s had to endure.

Rations, strict lessons and air raid sirens were just some of the ingredients that brought the topic of war to life for 70 Year 3 youngsters at Northern Parade Juniors, in North End.

Amanda Westaway, Year 3 tutor and assistant headteacher, said: ‘The roleplay gave the children an excellent insight into the Second World War period.

‘Their feedback was terrific. Some of the children looked at the butter rations to make biscuits and said they had more cheese in their sandwich!

‘Children benefit hugely from activities like this which allow them to relate to the topics.’
