Evacuation drama in Year 6

In preparation for our diary writing this week, Year 6 have been studying World War II in English and History lessons. In today's lesson, we listened to a radio drama about a young girl's diary, where she documented her evacuation from London to the countryside and her adjustments to life on a farm. We acted out each of the key moments to immerse ourselves in the thoughts and feelings of an evacuee, in order to add lots of emotive language to our work in the week ahead.
