The children loved our evacuation day. It started with their parents waving them off from the train station followed by a train journey to the billeting office where they found out who their hosts were going to be. The children then researched what life would have been like as an evacuee and wrote letters to their parents. It was wonderful to hear the children singing war songs throughout the day when they heard the air raid siren and they were absolutely brilliant during the make do and mend activity where they used darning to fix holes in socks.
