Learn about the Evacuation by hanging out with Mr P's Grandparents!

On Thursday 10th December at 1.30pm, Year 6 will be interviewing my Grandparents to learn about what it was like to be an evacuee. This links in with their World War 2 topic and is something we have done for a number of years. This time we wanted to share this experience and so will be doing a LIVE Google Hangout on Air so any classroom around the world can join us in this valuable learning experience!

It will be a worthwhile experience to learn from people who experienced evacuation first hand. I am always fascinated to listen about what they went through and how different the experiences were for my Nana and Grandad! 

We will prepare some questions but you can also contribute by tweeting them to me - @ICT_MrP or post them to this Padlet Wall -

Make sure you join us LIVE on Thursday at 1.30. Here is the link to the video - 

UPDATE - 10th December!

What a wonderful afternoon! A massive thank you to my fantastic Grandparents who shared so much useful information and really helped the children with their learning. I was so happy to see that we had 20 schools join us live for the Google Hangout and anyone else can now rewatch the interview as it has saved on YouTube. 

It was lovely to see tweets and messages from other schools saying how much they enjoyed the interview! We even went international with a school in Istanbul tuning in! Here are a couple of the tweets we received!
