Trusting in God; Creating Tomorrow; Helping Today


We had a brilliant launch day for this Topic! The children came dressed up as a WWII evacuee with their evacuee label and gas mask box. The costumes looked amazing. 


We were given evacuee labels to see where we would be sent when we were evacuated!

We pretended that we were evacuees and wrote letters back to our families about our new life, we packed a suitcase as if we were an evacuee, we researched about gas masks, we looked at the major cities bombed during the Blitz and looked at the propaganda posters which convinced parents to send their children away for evacuation. 


We had a brilliant day and can't wait to learn a lot more about WWII throughout this topic.
