We launched our study of World War Two this week with a fantastic trip to GWR Winchcombe! Dressed as evacuees, we were transported back to the 1940s as we were evacuated to the safety of the country on the steam train. The children amazed us with their enthusiasm, questioning and participation in all of the activities. We enjoyed singing WW2 songs on the train, catching German spies, training with the Auxiliary Fire Service, studying artefacts from the time and even experienced the sounds of an air raid. What a brilliant way to start our topic!
