During the afternoon of 16th October, Beech class were very lucky to play host to Amy's Granddad. He volunteered (with no pressure from his Granddaughter...) to speak to the children about his experiences of being evacuated during World War 2.
As a five year old in 1939, life during the war was almost a 'normality' until being evacuated with his siblings and mother from London to a small village in Wales.
The class relished the opportunity to ask their questions as Reg shared the memories, tales and experiences of his early life. They learned much from his 'first hand' knowledge and will be using their findings to add to their topic books.
Thanks to Amy for suggesting the visit and to Reg for braving not just the Blitz, but Beech class too!
