Year 6 Stibbington Evacuation Day

Year 6 Stibbington Evacuation Day (Mrs Pollard)

Posted Thursday, 7th February


On Monday, 4th February, the Year 6 children and staff travelled back in time to experience a day as a World War II evacuee. Each child was given the identity of a child who was actually sent to Stibbington early in the war. Upon arriving at Wansford Station, the children were met by a billeting officer who escorted them across the field to Stibbington village, pointing out the houses where the evacuated children stayed. The rest of the day was spent in a wartime school room, experiencing a day as a school child during the Blitz.
