Red Kites

Crucial Crew July 2017

KS2 traveled to the Yorkshire showground for countryside day. We got to hold baby chicks and see big chickens and turkeys, make felt and even made poo! EWW! In the afternoon one group became archaeologists, learning about fossils and different types of rock; the other group used natural materials to make paint. 
KS2 travelled back in time to WW2 where they experienced what life would have been like during and after the war. They saw air raid shelters, military tanks and saw machinery from the army. We walked through a make believe blitz attack that had the real air siren. We walked through a town center where there was different shops; a lot of them were rationing shops or make do and mend shops but we recognised the brands such as Bisto and Typoo. There was also a big room with loads of newspapers in so we could see what the headlines were during the war.

Visitors Bud and Doreen came to school to talk about their experiences during World War II. Bud was a Polish prisoner of war and shared his personal experiences and memories. It was really interesting to hear about their life experiences. 

Feliz año nuevo
