As part of our World War Two topic, Year 6 visited Beamish Museum. We took part in workshop called ‘a day in the life of an evacuee.’ Here we experienced what it would be like to live and work on a farm in the 1940s. We cooked using rations, fed the animals and blacked out the windows of the farmhouse. We even went inside a real Anderson Shelter. It was very interesting to see what life was like for children during the war and it certainly helped to bring our history topic to life!
