As everyone returned to school in the UK, after our magnificent Jubilee Bank Holiday weekend in June, some of the children of Stoneydelph Primary School in Tamworth, Staffordshire, were studying all about World War Two and focus on what it meant for the children during that time.
They were asked to take a shoebox into school and fill it with their most precious things from home, as if they were leaving there for the last time to be evacuated. History is there to learn from, not change, and this was a great way to help children understand the impact of war.
Here we see the wonderful Scarlett with her shoebox of valuables which includes her copy of The Adventures of Poppy and Lord Ted: The First Summer!
Thank you Scarlett, what an amazing addition to any emergency box! We were very humbled here at Poppy and Lord Ted HQ to be included!
What would you take in your shoe box if you had to leave right now? Let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org
