Travel back in time with ‘Polly’ to 1944, just after the D Day Landings and experience what it might have been like to be an evacuee during World War II. Pack your suitcase and get ready to leave your hometown for the country, but unexpectedly end up in London in the middle of an air raid.

During this workshop, the children will:

  • Create images of life during The Blitz.
  • Learn about the need for rationing at the time.
  • Learn about songs sung and the importance of keeping spirits up during this difficult time.
  • Explore what it was like to be an evacuee and move to the country.
