The Blitz!

The children in Class 12 worked brilliantly this afternoon working collaboratively to find facts anoit the Blitz. The children used chromebooks and non-fiction books to help them.

I wonder if you can share a fact you now know about the Blitz with your family at home?

Well done to everyone for your hard work today in all lessons. I have thoroughly loved teaching you all.

Evacuation Day!

Well done to everybody in Year 4 for a fantastic trip to Ealand.  We all used our imagination stepping back in time, trying to put ourselves into the shoes of evacuees.  It was a great experience and we learnt a lot of interesting facts listening to Mary and Maureen sharing their memories of living through World War Two.
