An Evacuee story

 

Activity 2

Next, go through the power point and think about/make notes about the answer to these questions

How old do they look? What do you think they felt like? What’s the longest time you’ve spent away from home? How long do you think they spent away?

 

On slide 13 read the slide and then think about these questions

 

A Letter from an evacuee and questions

Talking points about letter

  • Q1: Do you think Ellen likes or dislikes being in the country? Give reasons for your answer.
  • Q2: We don’t know from this letter how Ellen feels about being away from her family. How do you think she might feel?
  • Q3: Other children sometimes disliked being evacuated. Why do you think this was?
  • Q4. If you could go back in time and speak to Ellen, what three questions would you ask her?

 

Activity 3

Write a letter home from the point of view of an evacuee. You need to decide on how you feel about being an evacuee.

Read the Evacuee interview  document to get a sense what it was like to be an evacuee during this time

Checklist of things you need to include in your letter

 

  1. Journey- What was the journey like?
  2. Family- Who are the family you are staying with? What are they like? Are your brothers and/or sisters with you?
  3. Where-Where are you living? Is it different to what you are used to? How?
  4. School- What is your school like? Do you like your new teacher?
  5. Food- Are the meal times different? Is the food different?
  6. Emotions- How are you feeling? Are you coping with the changes? Do you miss anyone? Who?

The letter will be an informal letter ( not like the one we wrote in English from Mrs Sass about Liam's behavior in the school assembly)
