Killygarry evacuees

We have been learning about WW2 and how it affected children.
Many city children were sent to the countryside where it was quieter and safer.
They were only allowed a few items, so we decided to have a go at packing a pillowcase full of what we decided were essential!
James and Ryan are our first pair of evacuees, being sent to Dingle Co. Kerry.

 Today we are being evacuated to Dingle Kerry we are only allowed to bring 10 things.  I brought a pillow, swim togs, t-shirt, shorts, lynx ,$30, coat, Croke park tickets and American football jersey. I brought the pillow because it’s my favourite pillow. I brought the swim togs in case I go to a rich house. I brought lynx so that I don’t get stinky. I brought the rest for memories.
