On Wednesday 18th of January 2017 Year 6 came in to school dressed in our FABULOUS WWII outfits!
For the first part of the day we made our evacuee tags to show where we were going. Then we went along the Rodwell Trail to stand on the platform and be sorted into our new guardian homes. Later we went to see the Anderson Shelter over in our school garden (someone actually lent us the shelter which had been in their garden during WWII!) Then we went off in our groups to do some activities! First of all, we went to see ‘Evacuee Boy’ (Mr Ryan) where we wrote and drew what we would take in our suitcase if we were an evacuee!
After break we went to ‘French Spy’ (Mrs Gerhardt) to try different food from WWII, including: Pickled Onions, Bovril, Spam, rice pudding, jam tarts and boiled sweets.
Finally, we went to ‘Nurse Sibley’ and learnt how to put on bandages and how to put a patient into the recovery position if they fall unconscious, and how to position them.
At the end of the day our parents came to see our propaganda posters, our piano recordings and a video of us doing the Lindy Hop dance. Click on the images below to enlarge.
