Evacuees Christmas

Key Stage One, Two & Three

Cross Curricular

Used as a follow up to an Evacuees vist day, or as a culmination to a Second World War study module, students are able to step into the lives of children who have been billeted into rural communition and are living as evacuees during WW2.

Experience Christmas 'away from home' and discover how the rationing and wartime restrictions impacted on celebrations.

Period characters such as the 'Billiting Officer, ARP Warden, WVS, Military Personell and various civilians amongst other seasonal characters, add reality to the day and we encourage children and visting staff to choose and remain in 'period character' for the duration, which greatly enhances the experience.
