Y5 + Y6 Severn Valley Railway Trip

On Tuesday the 17th May, our Y5 and Y6 children stepped back in time.  The children became evacuees for the day and experienced what life would have been like for a child living during the war years.


The children, teachers and helpers dressed up to help make the experience as authentic as possible.  Mr Ascroft, Deputy Head Teacher, values the importance of children having first hand experiences to help them gain a greater insight into an event which has had a dramatic impact on our local community and country as a whole. “The evacuation trip enabled the children to gain a deeper understanding of what life may have been like for evacuee children during the second world war and the experience has added an intensity to their writing and comprehension which cannot be gained from books.”  Mr Ascroft

Staff at Bewdley Museum and the Severn Valley Railway made the day both entertaining and informative and have spurred the children’s enthusiasm and motivation to further explore their World War II topic.
