Air raid sirens sounded and the children were told it was not safe to remain and would need to prepare ration books, ID cards and gas masks before departure for the countryside.
After making the items, the children were paired with a virtual family from the era and wrote letters home.
A street party was held to celebrate the end of the war, with food of the day – jam tarts, Spam and corned beef sandwiches and jelly which they made themselves. Traditional games followed and a song, using the children's lyrics, reflecting their experiences.
