What was it like to be a World War II evacuee? Year 6 know…

Leave a comment

This morning’s assembly from Year 6 may have hit The Barn a few weeks later than scheduled owing to the snow last term – but what a great performance it was! The theme was inspired by the children’s recent history topic on Britain in World War II war and by their recent exciting and memorable visit to the Time and Tide Museum. It focused on children evacuated from the city during World War II. Pillowcase bags and gas mask boxes in hand, Year 6 became brave little city children, off on a train to escape the horrors of air raids and live with kind strangers. They also marched as soldiers… and they sang us a song about evacuees.  As Lydia’s mother said, “It was a really wonderful assembly: so moving, and so well performed, the children did it all so well, including lovely singing.”

Well done, Year 6; and thank you to all the families who came to see the children perform.
