World War 2 day!

For our History day we lived a day in the life of a WW2 evacuee. We started by making our own evacuee tags and gas masks, we learned some WW2 songs, baked using rations, wrote post cards home, learned Morse code and discussed what we would pack in our bags. We had a brilliant day and we hope you enjoy looking at our pictures.
