Duration: Full Day

Staff: 2 staff members

Cost: £350 inc all ingredients
(Based on one class / approx 30 children)

Location: Delivered on site

Activities include:

  • Introduction to World War II, where and when it took place.
  • Rationing, why it was necessary and how it impacted on people’s lives.
  • The story of F.O. Les Hood and shelter building.
  • Creating fire by friction
  • Preparing, cooking and tasting dishes using rationing recipes and techniques.
  • Looking at the principles of survival.

The WW2 and Survival programme introduces children to how people lived and survived in this period of history. They will experience examples of some of the foods that were rationed and how they were prepared and cooked through a ‘hands-on’ demonstration and discover the importance of survival skills!

Studies:

The session uses the real life experiences of a local hero Flying Officer Les Hood, and shows how the fundamentals of survival were actually used to survive a life or death situation.

“…we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender.” Winston S Churchill

What People Say

Over the three sessions, all the children learnt new skills and enjoyed their time outdoors! It gave me increased knowledge and the confidence to plan and to deliver similar activities myself. The original aim, to link to PE and specifically an outdoor and adventurous activity core task, was met – especially on teamworking and cooperation. All the sessions were well planned and organised and they were delivered and managed well. Every activity challenged the children and taught them new skills. It was good to see less confident children have the opportunity to shine too!

Denise Hannon, St Chad’s RCVA Primary

The children thoroughly enjoyed the session and developed their knowledge about the Stone Age. The day was fantastic. It was delivered very well, the children were engaged all day and they learnt a lot about the topic, as well as developing skills such as team building and problem solving.

Nicola Cooke, St. Anne’s CE Primary

Sam has worked with our children to teach them about saving and conserving energy. He explained a complicated concept in an entertaining and lively way that was accessible to all our children. He was friendly and approachable, encouraging easy communication with staff and children.
The children thoroughly enjoyed his lessons and continued to talk about what they had learnt, long after Sam had left. Sam has also been invaluable in promoting outdoor learning, training staff and has run inspirational forest schools sessions with our children. I would thoroughly recommend him to others!

Jeanne O’Keefe, Oxclose Nursery

Sam has organised a number of community learning events with me. He is very organised and plans great learning experiences for adults and children.  Children and their carers raved about the cooking on the fire and the fauna identification activities in their evaluations.  I would highly recommend a Sam Jackson led event at any school.

Helen Grainger, Esh Winning Primary

The children thoroughly enjoyed the outdoor activities.  All the children were eager and excited to find out more.  A fantastic day – managed and delivered very well.  A really interesting way to focus on our topic of the Great Fire of London.
