Children at a north Northumberland school turned the clock back to the Second World War, as they experienced what it would be like to be an evacuee.
The youngsters, from Broomhill First School, dressed up in 1940s clothes, went on a train journey and were selected by new parents in their homes in the countryside.
Pupils packed suitcases with items such as teddy bears, books and letters to loved ones.
They also sang rousing war-time songs. The special event was part of the Second World War-themed topic, I’m An Evacuee Get Me Out Of Here.
Teacher Elaine Brindle believes the pupils enjoyed the living history experience.
“They had a fantastic time.
“They went on a train journey. Some children were a little bit worried when they got selected by their new parents and taken to a new school.
“It has been a really good experience and the children were able to feel what it was like to be an evacuee during the Second World War.
“Hopefully it is something they will remember for a long time to come.”
