On Thursday 18th January, year 5 went on an amazing school trip to Hartlebury Castle. We went to learn more about World War II and life as an evacuee (we wore some amazing costumes!)
We started off in the old scullery where Auntie Dorris told us more about rationing and chores and we had a go at some of them. We also saw a gazunder, a darning mushroom, a carpet beater and a bean grinder.
After lunch, we went into Mrs Brown’s classroom and learned about how to shelter during an air raid and how to put a gas mask on. We heard Winston Churchill’s speech about Belgium’s surrender and looked at mystery objects, old coins, an evacuee’s suitcase and played with some old toys.
In conclusion, we had a great day!
