On Tuesday, Years 2 and 6 spent an absorbing day at the GWR Steam Railway Museum at Winchcombe Station. In full WW2 dress, they enjoyed a full day experiencing something of what it was like to be an evacuee in 1940. The day included handling artefacts, singing WW2 songs outside the station accompanied by a banjo and accordion. The children listened and chatted to 80 year old evacuees who shared their experiences, put out incendiary bombs using a stirrup pump, were summoned to an air raid shelter to sit out a bombing raid by German planes and a doodlebug.
