Bringing Learning to Life

Year 5 experience how it feels to be an evacuee.

Year 5 were whisked back in time to the 1940s on our very own steam train. The train took us on an exciting journey from Sheringham to Holt. On arrival to Holt Station, we experienced an air raid and had to take cover. We continued our experience as an evacuee by completing general chores, making a rationed lunch (with some interesting flavour combinations), preparing for an attack with gas masks and learning how to spot the difference between enemy aircraft and our own. We have now returned to 2018, but thoroughly enjoyed our 1940s experience.
