A Harrow school will be transported back to the 1940s for a special week to celebrate the reopening of its bomb shelter.
Stanburn First School, in Abercorn Road, will be hosting a seven-day event of wartime activities to give pupils the chance to experience life in Second World War Britain to mark the school's 70th anniversary.
There will be workshops from the Royal Air Force Museum, in Grahame Park Way, Hendon, and the Imperial War Museum, in London, and students will be presenting their views of the 1940s to their parents throughout the week.
Children at the school will also be learning to jive and will have a 1940s-style lesson complete with an air raid siren and evacuation.
The school has refurbished the bomb shelter, which has been transformed into a museum for members of the local community.
The week will end with a summer fete with a 1940s theme on June 28. Visitors will be treated to an old fashioned carousel, helter skelter and coconut shy from the past and activities from the present including a simulator ride and trampolines, as well as the Kew Wind Orchestra playing wartime tunes.
Linda Gooblar, assistant head, said: "In the future the museum will be open for schools and people in the local community.
"The fair on Saturday will have half in the 1940s, with GIs and the Kew Wind Orchestra, and the other side in 2008. We are hoping everyone will get into the spirit."
Tony McNulty, MP for Harrow East, will officially open the blast shelter.
