The children looked fantastic today, dressed up as evacuees.

We had a brilliant day at Holdenby House where the children learnt about gas masks, shelters, food and clothes rationing and sang some wartime songs.

They helped to make a Woolton Pie, made rag rugs, held an incendiary bomb and learnt the words to the National Anthem.

  1. What an amazing experience. Hannah was buzzing when she came home and phoned her Nan to talk about her experiences of wartime air raids, rations and more. Thank you for organising such an interesting trip!

  2. It was a strict and fun time. They taught me a lot of things. It was a great trip to Holdenby house but a least I am not one of the evacuees.
