The Evacuation Experience 2018
A kinaesthetic experience for schools.
Materials for Teachers for 2018
On this page are the links to all the resources you need for the 2018 Evacuation Experience which includes files updated from previous years.
The Evacuation labels and Gas Mask template are included for reference.
Whether this is your first visit to the Experience or you are an "old hand" the notes below should help you.
You need to:
1. Print out a Children's Activity Book for each child (4 pages) so they can bring it with them, preferably on a clipboard. Also the Signalling Activity (child) sheet for each child.
2. Print out an evacuation luggage label for each child; red ones for children who should not be photographed and brown for the rest. These need to be worn on the day - they were a legal requirement during WW2.
3. Print out the gas mask template so each child can make their own in class to bring with them on the day.
4. Encourage your children to come dressed in 1940s costume. 90% did so last year!
5. Read the Spivs information to your class before they meet Viv as he has his own timetable "slot" again this year.
On the day each lead teacher for each school will be given an information folder which will contain your timetable for the day, an activity checklist so your party's adults can tick off each activity as the children do it, a crammed carriage script and supply of ID cards based on the numbers submitted when booking. Your Identity Card also represents your Pass to Travel for the exact number of children and adults that you have booked.
Finally we would like to remind you that schools booked to take the first train (10:40) need to arrive by 10:15 to be sure of catching it. Due to the fact that there are three timetabled activities this year, flexibility is almost zero as changing your train would interfere with other schools' timetabled activities.
We look forward to welcoming you in May.
