Professor McGinty entertains Year 5 with his ‘World War 2 Mobile Museum’

Year 5 had a fabulous morning with the amazing Professor McGinty. 


His ‘World War 2 Workshop’ combined storytelling, costumes, artefacts, slides, smells, music and sounds of the time in question.
The ‘mobile museum’ is the main talking point of the workshop, giving the children chance to examine,
touch and experience objects that would normally be found out of reach in a glass case.

The children explored; rationing, politics, air raids, the home guard, the new role for women due to the war, gas masks, clothing, shelters, evacuation, the army, navy and air force, weapons and growing up in World War Two.
