Year 6 had an excellent time at Beamish. For our history focus, we took part in an immersive experience project: being WWII evacuees for the day. Evacuated to Home Farm, we worked the land, looked after the animals, baked carrot cookies with rationed ingredients and followed blackout procedures. Training for the Home Guard after lunch was intense but purposeful. We finished the day with a stay in the Anderson shelter and then writing postcards to our loved ones. Following this, with war being declared over, we were finally allowed to come home!
