Evacuee Day

It is 1942. Britain is at War. The children are received at Holdenby Evacuee Centre. A selection of characters will then teach them a variety of hands on activities that will help them become more useful evacuees:

  • learn about the weekly rations and help Mrs North in the kitchen preparing seasonal wartime food.
  • Mrs Fortescue-Oliver needs help with her knitting and rag rugs for her Make-Do-and-Mend Drive.
  • Stella, our land army girl, Mr Jampton, our Air Raid Warden, or The Major will show you how to keep safe - Air Raid Shelter and Gas Masks.

After lunch there is a sing-along to cheer everyone up before the children go to their host families.

This project covers various parts of the National Curriculum KS1 and KS2
