Our new EPIC writing activity is going to be to send a letter as an evacuee being sent to the country during the war. We decided to begin our learning with some drama and mind mapping of all the emotions we would have gone through on our journey to our new homes. We used our class text 'Letters From The Lighthouse' as inspiration, and also looked at Michael Morpurgo's 'Friend Or Foe' and the evacuation scene at the beginning of 'The Lion, the Witch and The Wardrobe'. It meant we could really get into character for when we were given the information about our new homes. Even though we knew it wasn't real, we still got extremely nervous waiting for our envelopes!
