We became part of the families in 1940 in London.

The children stepped into the shoes of the children from that era and looked at how to live our lives in a crisis.

The answer was found when we discovered that the king had called the whole nation to pray.
Then all the churches were suddenly filled with people asking God to help them in this terrible situation.

We also learnt about Ration Books from Yvonne who remembers them!

And Joe taught us all how to make different paper aeroplanes!
