Tuesday 6th February: The company:History Off the Page will be visiting our school to work with the children on The Fire of London.
We desperately need 12 parent volunteers to man the stations for this particular day. If you are willing to help out all day and have been inducted and have a DBS check, please fill in the reply slip at the bottom of the letter we sent out and return it to the office. Thank you!
Don’t forget your child will need to be in a costume on that day!
The children visited The War, Plague and Fire Gallery. They also had a storytelling session which incorporated evidence about the experiences of men, women and children, as well as Pepys, King Charles and Thomas Farriner (the baker). The children acted out key characters, the crooked houses of London, and the flames of the Great Fire.

The First Nativity
The children performed the Concert three times: once to Reception and Year 2, and twice to their parents!
The musicians knew which instruments to play and when to play them
The carol singers sang beautifully
The narrators spoke in a loud, clear voice and they all remembered their lines
The dancers were fantastic
The young actors and actresses came on the stage at the right time and also spoke using a loud, clear voice
It was a joy to watch and we are all very proud of them.

We visited St John The Evangelist. At the church, the children identified some of the features of a church which make it a special place for Christians.
2nd, 5th, and 9th October 2017
The children had a fantastic time at the Museum of Childhood. They had a really good look at all the old and new toys in the glass cabinets and enthusiastically played with all the toys that were available for them to play with, around the museum. The Punch and Judy puppet theater was a big hit! During the workshops we booked, the children had an introduction to chronology. They had to put certain toys on a timeline according to whether the toys were around during their grandparents, parents or their own lives.
Thursday 28th September 2017
The children compiled a list of questions and interviewed Miss Ross in the hall, about the toys she use to play with when she was a child.
