Year 4 have had a Blitz night sleepover tonight. They have been imagining what life was like as an evacuee by spending the night away from their parents and doing wartime activities.
We experienced a walk in the playground, in the dark, to try to understand what it was like during a blackout. We have been french knitting, playing war time games, following a war time recipe to bake Carrot cookies and write a letter as an evacuee to our parents.
Why did people mend and make do during the war? Why do you think carrot was used in a cookie?
How do you think evacuees felt to be sent away from their parents?
What have you enjoyed about this experience?
What have you learnt?
