Kingfishers – ENTRY POINT – World War Two

Evacuee suitcase. Children were very excited to show their cases or pillowcases with items they thought would be useful and helpful if they had to be evacuated – a real mixture of personal and practical items. We had discussions about how useful a tin of beans would be without an opener and how a newspaper could be used for news updates, an insulator and even be used to light a fire. We compared our items with a suitcase from the 1940s and found there were many similarities.
