Evacuee Suitcases

In our topic lesson today we started to explore how it may have felt to be an evacuee.  We watched the first few minutes of “Goodnight Mr Tom” and discussed both how Willy and Mr Tom must have felt.  We are now in the process of making some evacuee size suitcases and I have asked the children to think about what they would have packed if they were an evacuee.  Next week I am hoping they will bring in their precious things to explore how they would have felt leaving their homes and families behind, not knowing if they would return or what they would return to.
