This term, we visited Beamish Museum, so we could find out what it was like to be an evacuee. We did lots of work in class to get information on why children were evacuated and what it was like for them.
Our teachers thought it would be good if we could live like an evacuee for just a day. We dressed up as evacuees and then travelled to Beamish Museum.
One of the first activities was the school play ground. Pupils got to play with the kind of toys evacuees had. One of the favourites was the iron ring, you have to run next to it and keep it rolling with an iron rod. There was also skipping ropes and skittles.
We had a great day at Beamish Museum and everyone was happy on the bus back to school.
