Pupils were evacuated to Worle to give them a taste of what life was like during World War Two.
Worle History Society worked with Worle Village Primary School and Luckwell Primary School in Bristol to recreate the experience of leaving home to escape bombing.
The schoolchildren dressed up for the day, and went on a tour around Worle to see areas which were affected by the war.
They also spoke to some evacuees about their experiences.
The project was held as part of Worle Village Primary’s attempt to become a heritage status school.
To gain the accreditation from Historic England, pupils must learn about the history of the area they live in.
