Activity Sheet No 5

Hello All

On Friday next week we will all be remembering the anniversary of the end of World War 2 in Europe. This week our bears would like to tell you a little bit about life in wartime Britain.

At the start of the war hundreds of thousands of children were evacuated from the danger of the cities to safer places. Lots and lots of them travelled by train, perhaps your school comes to the Watercress Line to see what it was like to be evacuated?

Click here for our first WW2 work sheet about ID cards and clothes rationing.

Washing line

This week Bailey has been trying to make up for being silly last time. He has done all the other bears washing for them but Bailey why are you hanging the washing up in the rain?


Don’t forget if you have a friend who has been ill recently or has had to miss out on birthday celebrations and you would like to give them a special mention on our page please ask a grown up to email education@watercressline.co.uk and our education volunteer will try to add them into our page the next week.
