For a memorable day learning all about the Second World War, we are the company to choose.

With 25 years experience in delivering quality school workshops and experience days, Black Knight Historical is the name you can trust.

We are proud to present our superb World War 2 activities for your school.

A typical day will introduce 2 characters from the War, although we can happily provide more or less as required.   We encourage children to come dressed up in '40s attire with their gas masks!

Children will meet:

Billy Spicer - an Air Raid Warden
Molly Stringer - a housewife and member of the Women's Voluntary Service [WVS].

We provide individual background character sheets for every student for exploration of various World War 2 topics. [over 30 unique A4 character cards,  all different, with 1930's names and incorporating a WW2 detective game].

As is usual with Black Knight school workshops, we start the day by surprising all the students in Assembly, and outlining the plans for the day.

The day typically unfolds after listening to Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain's speech of Sept 1939 on a period wireless set, and identifying the enemies flag.  We explore life on the Home Front, the reasons behind the conflict, Hitler's rise to power, who was Winston Churchill, what was Blitzkrieg?, identifying friend and foe, medical treatments, life during the Blitz, rationing, Air Raid procedures, technological advancements during the war, The Final Solution.

All with hundreds of artefacts, roleplay, and mystery object identification.  A truly memorable day!

We end the day with our very special 'Home Guard Training Course' as seen below:
