Year 5 have entered an evacuee postcard competition as part of their work on World War II.Below is the response from the competition organisers. Well done Year 5!
I just wanted to drop you a note to thank you for sending me the entries to our Evacuee Competition from some of your pupils,they are very good and I am impressed by the quality of the writing and drawings.
I have to say whoever taught them has done a very good job as they seem to have understood what the evacuation of children really meant. I had to smile at Naim's postcard telling his Mum & Dad that he hates pulling the udder from a cow, nevertheless loves it when he has to sheer the sheeps wool.I also laughed when he said " I also took a picture of you guys' - the American language is definitely here to stay!
They are certainly some of the best I have recieved for their age group, but of course I am only doing the initial short listing, the judges will choose their favourites, but rest assured I have already chosen the ones I like.
I will let you know more once the final date for the entries has come and gone at the end of November.
Once again very many thanks for your support.
