Year 6 evacuation day experience
Yesterday, pupils from Year 6 in were – in support of their theme lesson – whisked back to 1940s Britain and were duly evacuated to the safety of Winchcombe. They experienced a steam train journey, met with other real evacuees and even had to seek shelter during an air raid. They were also trained to be members of ‘fire parties’ ready to put out any fires after a bombing raid. Finally it was time to head back to the future.
