Off to the Billeting office!
What an action packed week from beginning to end – On Tuesday (should have been Monday – but that’s another story!) the children found out what their part/s are going to be in our end of term production – Now the hard work begins… Also on Tuesday we had our Forest School session with Mr Holland, as it had been so wet the previous week we were all hoping for better weather – unfortunately that wasn’t to be – in fact the rain was even heavier than last week but once again that did not dampen the children’s enthusiasm as in they threw themselves every activity especially the rope swing making (and swinging on)
Our mini history project (linked to the history of our school building) focusing on the Second World War has kept us very busy. We have used old photographs to discover many interesting facts about the different classes and lessons taught in our school during the war. We also had the opportunity to have a wonderful question and answer session with a former pupil (Mrs Mason) who really brought to life what being a pupil in the old Love Street Girls Secondary School was like. On Friday our school became a billeting station for evacuees. We came to school dressed in period costumes and were taken to the Grosvenor Museum to be sent away to Wales (away from the bombing!…) Lucky for us we weren’t actually evacuated – but we did have a very enjoyable hands on history session about the home front during WW2 in the education centre. Please can I thank you all of you for the support you gave with the costumes – they were all absolutely fantastic. The museum staff were very impressed with the effort the children had put into their outfits and how authentic they looked.
Learning their parts for Billy Elliot will be an ongoing homework activity.
Have a lovely weekend
