Year 6 Evacuee Day

In year 6 we had a fantastic day stepping back into 1939 and we were delighted to see the children in brilliant evacuee outfits - they looked super! During our evacuation day, we made gas mask boxes and gas masks to teach the children about safety procedures that were in place. We also learnt all about the experiences evacuees went through and we learnt about how some evacuees got to live on farms and see where an egg came from for the first time! We can't wait to see how the children will use this experience to support their writing.
