Living history and looking to the future

Learning really came to life for our Year 5 classes this week, as they immersed themselves in a World War II evacuees day.  Hop across to the Year 5 blog to see some great images from the day.  Having such deep learning days really help pupils to understand topics across the curriculum, with learning in a subject like History being put to good use elsewhere in English, for example, through the study of classic novels such as Carrie’s War and The Silver Sword.  Great thanks go to the Year 5 teaching team of Mrs Edge, Miss Stapley, Mr Crozier, Mrs Richardson, Mrs Lavery and Mrs Osmond for leading the way on the World War II event, and to Mrs Gray and her team in the kitchen for serving up corned beef hash and tapioca!
