Year 5 trip to Hill End 

 Year 5 were given an amazing opportunity to visit Hill End to experience what life was like in World War One trenches. Hill End was used as a training base for World War One soldiers before they went to fight on the front line. We had to put on uniforms to camouflage ourselves and give us the full experience of what it would have been like. We were shown real photographs of the trenches, had to re-enact these and add in our thoughts and feelings. We were taught how to cross no man's land and attack our opponents in battle. We thought it was a really fun day and it showed how hard it was for people to survive in the war.

Information will follow about an opportunity for parents to tour the grounds and a display will be put up in the hall after Christmas showing our fantastic work.

Year 5/6 trip to Whipsnade Zoo

 

Year 5 and 6 had a great day at the zoo this week. We found out lots of information about endangered animals and what we can do to help them. The children enjoyed watching the shows and visiting all of the animals. One Year 5 child said, “We have learned lots by listening to the talks on the animals.” Here are some photos from our day!
