These two boxes give pupils an opportunity to look inside the suitcase of a child about to be evacuated during the Second World War. This is a useful introductory resource as well as supporting learning throughout the study of Wartime Britain. Children can study the objects of a typical evacuee and compare them with what they would take them if they had to be evacuated.
Ideal for use with Key Stage 2, Years 3 and 4
