What a fantastic day we had at the 'We'll Meet Again' event on Wednesday 11th October. The children took part in five workshops which covered different aspects of life during the War. They found out what it felt like to be evacuated and to stand in line, wondering whether they would be chosen by any of the villagers in their host destination. We all discovered how cramped and uncomfortable air-raid shelters were and how alarming it would have been to sit listening to the sound of bombs falling all around. All in all, the children had an unforgettable experience! Here is a selection of photographs taken on the day to give you a flavour of the event.
We will be spending 5 days in beautiful North Devon in March. The residential is a very important part of Year 6 where children learn to be more independent, more confident and will also have great fun. This year we have been so lucky to get a booking at the Beacon, a very popular activity holiday centre. Do send in your deposit money by the end of the first week of term to secure your child's place. We are really hoping that every child will come this year!
Thank you so much for sending in such super outfits for your children. They looked very authentic for our topic launch on Wednesday. Please do keep their outfits as they will be needing them again as the term progresses!
