MAKE do and mend! That was one of the messages that Year 2 and 3 pupils from Winterton Primary School were given when they visited Great Yarmouth Time & Tide Museum as part of their Evacuee Day. The children spent the morning in school in their role as evacuees, preparing for their long journey to the safety of the countryside. In the afternoon, they were drilled in emergency procedures, including the use of gas masks and Morrison shelters. They also made toilet paper out of old newspaper and learned how to recycle old clothes to make new ones, visited a shop where they used their ration books to buy tea and experienced an air-raid.
