Grantham pupils take step back in time to discover what life was like in 1940's

Primary school pupils took a step back in time when they took a trip to Stibbington to re-enact what life was like as an evacuee in the Second World War.

Youngsters in Years 3 and 4 at Belmont Primary School in Grantham dressed in 1940’s style clothing and travelled to Nene Valley train station in Stibbington, Cambridgeshire, last month where they were met by two ladies who introduced themselves as the children’s teachers for the day.

Their new teachers led the group on to a steam train and took the register using the pupils new 1940’s names, which were actually the names of real evacuee children who were evacuated from London to Stibbington during the war.
