Fleet Air Arm Museum Trip 16.1.2019 (Or should that read 16.1.1939)
The Battle of Britain
Our second workshop involved working in teams to investigate different aspects of the Battle of Britain. We used documents and artefacts to solve puzzles and learn about what actually happened. We explored pilots’ experiences, women’s roles, propaganda and much more! Did you know that Britain was very close to losing the war even though our armed forces were doing an amazing job? Mr. Churchill was extremely worried! Thank goodness the USA came to our aid! Once we gained supremacy in the skies, we also gained the upper hand.
After lunch, we split into groups and enjoyed a tour of the museum, including the aircraft carrier experience. All too soon, it was time to leave for home. What a great day we had had though!
World War II Pick & Mix Homework
We have had a lovely afternoon sharing our ‘Pick & Mix’ homework with each other.
There were cakes, biscuits, board games, poems, cards, posters, a story and a toy, all with a wartime theme. You’ve all been working hard on this creative task and should be proud of your efforts. Thanks to all the parents (and in some cases grandparents) for their support.
Year 6’s trip to the SSDC offices.
On Wednesday 10th October we visited the South Somerset District Council offices as part of our ‘British Values curriculum. We found out about all the diiferent ways the council help our community.
In our House teams we prepared proposals for a new leisure facility for the town. We then learnt about the voted process before voting for the proposal we liked best.
Come and see our display in the main school corridor.
