Dig for Victory!

The potatoes that we planted before Easter for our history topic, 'I'm an evacuee, get me out of here!' are growing well in the current conditions!

We look forward to harvesting them at the end of the school year!

Evacuation on the Watercress Line!

To launch our new topic, 'Help! I'm an Evacuee, get me out of here!' year 5 travelled back in time to experience what life would have been like for an evacuee during World War 2 on the Watercress Line.
  Our day started at Alresford train station where we met our billeting officer who then instructed us that we were to be evacuated to Ropley train station, which is where we experienced making our own clothes. Due to rationing, children and families had to make their own clothes or even worse, have hand me downs!

Whilst at Ropely, we met Jack, who was 89 years old and during World War 2, experienced young evacuees being evacuated to his own village and to his neighbour's house. Jack gave us a valuable insight into what life must have been like back during World War 2 and trying to play with friends during the blackout!

We then boarded the train to make our way home via Alton while filling in our postcards home and identity cards, which were carried by all evacuees!
