Can you help the School with their a World War II ‘Evacuation Day’ in January. Were you an evacuee, did your family host evacuees, or are you a Veteran?
Hi Parwich Blog,
I wonder if you can help me find someone to come in and help Parwich School with our latest Topic on World War 2. I am the Key Stage 2 teacher (ages 7-11) and the children have been having lots of fun learning about the last world war. Lots of parents have sent in war relics such as ration books and helmets and we are now planning an Evacuation Day on Tuesday 14th January 2014.
It is going to be a very authentic day with dressing up and rations for lunch (well not too authentic!) It would be wonderful if we could invite someone locally to visit during the day who experienced World War 2, either as an actual evacuee or who was a child in a host family or even a war veteran. The children could interview the guest and then write about their experiences. This would be a fantastic opportunity for the children and I really hope there is someone in the locality who can help!
Please can you ask everyone on the blog if they know anyone?
Thank you so much and looking forward to seeing if we get any responses.
Very best wishes,
Parwich Primary School
