Activity 2

Evacuation: Research what happened to children during the evacuation. Either write a diary entry from the point of view of a child who has been evacuated to the countryside or a letter home telling your mum what it is like where you are staying.


Practical activity: Find out what the children were allowed to take and pack yourself a bag containing just what they were allowed. Take a photo of your bag and compare this to what you would take away on a summer holiday!


Art activity: Use magazines and newspapers (if you have any) to make a collage of images that represent the evacuation.
