Our Bewdley Museum trip
We arrived at Bewdley Museum at 10:00 AM where we met the wonderful museum staff; Amanda, Rosemary, Julia and Barbara. Amanda showed us the Sawyard and told us that the cobbles where the oldest part of the museum. Rosemary talked to us about how the war started and some of the leaders involved like Winston Churchill, Neville Chamberlain and Adolf Hitler. We spent some time in the education room where we learnt all about the evacuee process, the story of Joan (a real life evacuee) and the experience of a child during WW2 and what they would likely pack in their suitcase when they were evacuated. We also got to go inside an Anderson Shelter that was used during WW2. In the afternoon, we heard the different air raid sirens and we got to play WW2 games like spinning tops, skipping and naughts and crosses! We all had a great day!
