Experiencing Evacuation

 

Recently, class 4 had the chance to experience a little of what evacuation would have felt like. We dressed up in World War Two costume and headed for Gloucester Folk Museum where we had the chance to handle a range of interesting artefacts from the period, as well as squeeze inside an Anderson Shelter. The experiences on the trip helped us to do some super writing back at school.
