Evacuation During World War II

We were told that we were going to be evacuated. We had a night to pack our cases. What would we take?

This is an example of one of our cases. We had lots of ideas such as photos, teddies, blankets, Xbox, journal, clothes, pens and games.

We then looked at what an actual evacuee packed and we were shocked at how little they took with them. We discussed why they were not taking things like a PlayStation. We discussed needs and wants.

We then filled out an identity card. We had to include our name, school and a description.

After reading Carries war and learning a lot about evacuation we decided to write a letter back home .We discussed how we would feel if we were sent away to live with a stranger. We talked about the train journey to the new place.
