On Thursday 15th December, year 6 held their World War 2 evacuee day. To get us in the mood, we all dressed up and created our own characters; the children looked great! After being evacuated on the train, where we played a game of Beetle and shared some of our rations, we had to go to the hall for selection. The best dressed and strongest looking evacuees were picked first, just like they would have been in WWII and then we had to explain to our adults who we were and what our life was like before being evacuated. Some children even brought props to help tell their stories. Once we were settled with our hosts, we wrote postcards home, which we then took to be posted. The rest of the day was spent learning a 1940s dance, sewing bunting from scrap materials and building our own air raid shelters. We had great fun! In the evening we had to prepare our own dinner using our rations. Between us we made sausage rolls, cauliflower cheese, Lord Woolton pie and fresh scones - enough for 60 people! To be honest, we were surprised by how wonderful it tasted. Before we went home with our adults, we performed our 1940s dancing for them. It was all great fun! A big thank you to all of the parents and carers who helped their children to look so fabulous for the day.
