Friday 9th June 2:00 – 2:30 pm

Hosted by CBBC’s Katie Thistleton, this very special Puffin Virtually Live show will teach your class all about what life was like for child evacuees like Shirley during World War 2.

Join the award-winning Jacqueline Wilson as she celebrates her beautiful and moving new book Wave Me Goodbye. Wave Me Goodbye tells the story of a ten-year-old girl called Shirley who is sent away to live in the country with nothing but a tiny suitcase, just as the Second World War begins.

Here are some show highlights you can look forward to:

  • Jacqueline Wilson on life for child evacuees
  • A tour of the Imperial War Museum
  • A draw-along with Nick Sharratt
  • A reading from Wave Me Goodbye
  • Writing tips
See your school name on screen! Send in your class’s answers to the following question: Which one toy or game would they include in their tiny suitcases should they be evacuated? Check back soon for school resources!
