Year 6 Blitz and Evacuee Workshop
The Blitz & Evacuees
It is 1939: World War Two has just been declared and the children are in role as young evacuees preparing to leave the East End of London and travel to Devon. The children encountered an ARP Warden, with selection of genuine and replica artefacts of the time. She prepared them for their first night in an Anderson Shelter, followed by their first trip to the countryside.
he children will enjoyed creating these authentic roles whilst learning about the plight of evacuees, the hardships faced by Londoners during WW2, and the difference between city life and country life in the 1930s and 1940s.
