When we got to school, we had to go straight to the hall and make an evacuee label for ourselves. They said who we were and where we had come from. Then the air raid siren went off. We had to go straight to the classroom.
Then we started our evacuation diaries. We pretended to be David or Tucky who are characters from the class book we are reading.
Next we did code breaking. We learnt about shift codes. We put a circle with the alphabet on top of another bigger circle. Then you had to shift the circles round and read off the new letter.
In the afternoon, we had a victory party. Each class had made something different for us all to eat. We had made Anzac biscuits (recipe in The Woodborough School Cookbook) and they were very popular.
