Year two enjoyed their time in the forest today. What started with den building and swinging quickly turned into war, with our children reinacting the amazing facts they found out at this week's history day!!!
Children had the opportunity to visit the Year 2 workshop and find out what it was like to be an evacuee during World War 2. We found out what we had to pack in our suitcase and imagined how it would feel to be sent to the countryside without our family.
The children have had a lovely day today celebrating the 100th year anniversary of the end of the World War. They have enjoyed workshops, activities and rounded off the day with a street party and dancing.
What a wonderful day! Mr Barker, for his workshop today create a tapestry of events through the war. The children were given some information on the Bayeux Tapestry and then began creating their own for the World Wars.
Thanks for the memories, Mr Barker
The children in Reception class dressed up in outfits worn during both World Wars. Some dressed as evacuees and some as soldiers. We discussed how lots of children were evacuated to the countryside and so they had to draw different things they would have packed in their suitcases for their stay.
As part of their history work , Year 1 brought in some photographs of themselves from when they were tiny babies to how they are now at age 6. They then put them in chronological order using a timeline.
Year 2 travelled to Liverpool to visit the Merseyside Maritime Museum. We have been learning about the Titanic in our History topic and the children loved exploring the Titanic exhibition. We also took part in a fantastic story telling workshop about the Titanic and enjoyed a stroll around Albert Dock.
Year 2 compared the Titanic with ocean liners today!
