D-Day Board Game
Board game club and Mr Wilderspin commemorated the 75th anniversary of the Normandy landings throughout the day on June 6th.
The group recreated the entire Normandy invasion coast and played out the battle using the Memoir 44 game system. Each pupil was put in charge of one of the five landing beaches: Sword, Juno, Gold, Omaha and Utah.
Pupils in English lessons wrote scripts for radio reports; reporters from each class visited the gamers to find out how operation Overlord was going.
In the end, history was repeated with the Allies successfully securing the beaches and many other objectives.
