Evacuee Day

Evacuee Day

Years 5 and 6 joined together to start their new project with a Memorable experience that took them back in time to World War II.

Each child was billeted to their new location and set off to experience a range of activities across the whole day.

Letters were written home to tell loved ones that they had arrived safely.

Research was completed to find out where exactly their location was within the UK:this started a discussion as to why these places were used for evacuees and exactly how far were they from London.

Marching practice and traditional playground games were played, that was until the air raid siren sounded and safety had to be found in the camouflaged hideout.

Propaganda posters were created to help warn people of the dangers ahead. 

Wartime songs were learnt with a final gathering of all the children to perform these together.

Plenty of fun and learning was had by all.

Look out for the recounts that will follow which help the children voice their accounts and describe how they felt to be an evacuee.
