Evacuation drama

THE CIVILIAN EVACUATION SCHEME IN BRITAIN DURING THE SECOND WORLD WAR 

Year six were transported back in time this morning to 1940. We made identity cards in preparation for the train journey to safety in the countryside. Not all of us wanted to leave our homes and parents and we had to pack our small suitcases carefully. It was a powerful at to explore the emotions of children in this situation, and the attitudes of the people who took them in.
