Our WWII Trip of a lifetime!
On Monday, we had an amazing day out at the Kent Life Museum. They set up a whole range of workshops for us to discover what it was like 70 years ago.
One of the work shops was run by an ARP officer. He told us about all the precautions people took to keep them safe.
We got to see a real-life Anderson shelter. It's amazing to think they managed to fit 8 people inside!!
We learnt about rationing and how people had to make a lot of sacrifices during wartime. You could only get 1 pint of milk a week!! Powdered milk was then invented during the shortage.
Another fun part of the day was pretending to be soldiers and marching up and down. We also got to handle a real rifle; it was really heavy!
