Learning and caring together, building a firm foundation for the future


Wow! What a way to start our week learning all about being evacuated!

We started off by chopping up our root vegetables and placing them in the slow cooker ready to slow cook throughout the day. The aromas were mouth watering. We were lucky enough to have Mrs Venison with us to make some dumplings to add to our vegetable stew.

We felt privileged to welcome Mr Weston and Mrs White (Mrs Venison's mum) along to tell us about their first hand experiences of the war and answer our questions.

We were mesmerised by their stories of Cornwall and Canterbury.

After lunch we spent some time writing postcards as if were were an evacuee telling our parents about our journey  and first impressions of the countryside.


We finished off by making war time carrot biscuits that used very little fat and sugar as these were rationed. They were surprisingly tasty and most of us wanted seconds!


What was your most favourite part of evacuee day?

    I enjoyed making the cookies with low resorses but it was hard because there were barely any. Even though I sprint my wrist the same day I can tell they were delicious.

    I enjoyed chopping the vegetables and making carrot biscuits. The vegetable stew was delicious.
