Imagining life as an evacuee

Friday 05 May 2023

This half term, children in 5/6 have been learning about what life was like in Britain during World War II. After carrying out some research, watching some interviews and reading our class novel (Letters From a Lighthouse) we acted out what it would have been like for evacuees meeting their host family for the first time.

A home: discuss how it might feel having to move away from your home due to war. Link the experience of life in World War II to the experiences of refugees today.
