Big picture / Art activities for the week

In school we have learnt a lot about children being evacuated to the countryside. Do you remember Lenny from our book 'The Lion and the Unicorn'. He had to wear a label pinned to his jacket as he got to the train station. Watch this video clip to hear a real life story of an evacuee as she retraces the journey and describes what it was like to leave home and live with a different family and attend a different school. 

I would like you to research evacuee labels like the one below and make your own. You could make it look old by staining with tea bags.
