New Class 5 2019-20

Class 5 have started the new school year with a great big “WOW” by being evacuated by steam train on the Severn Valley Railway. We had a fantastic day learning all about the Blitz and Evacuation. We began with a workshop where we found out about blackouts, rationing, evacuation and what to do in an air raid. We were able to go into the air raid shelter and put out incendiary bombs. We were then evacuated by Steam train to Highley from Bewdley. For some of us it was the first time we had travelled on a real steam train so it was very exciting. We were able to look round the engine sheds and played 1940’s style playground games. We had a really brilliant day and it was a fantastic opening experience for our theme “Evacuate Evacuate.”
