On Thursday the Year 3 group had the pleasure of travelling to Gressenhall for a World War Two day. The children looked splendid all dressed up as evacuees and threw themselves into the activities and the spirit of the day.
We were greeted by Captain Morgan in Chapel who outlined his ‘expectations’. Soon afterwards we were off with Mabel to look into farming on the home front and had the privilege of meeting a lovely Suffolk Punch while being put to good and useful work in the fields. After this we met the Air Raid Warden and learned how to respond to a German bombing attack. A short break for some lunch followed and we were then shown to Mrs Potts who taught us how to make some war time treats. Once we had said goodbye to the impressive Mrs Potts we were put through their paces by Captain Morgan.
It was a super day out. The children were fantastic ambassadors for the school, they were the epitome of Effective Participators, they really were. Many thanks for to the staff at Gressenhall for creating such an immersive experience for the children, Miss Temple for organising the trip and the kitchen staff for putting together a yummy lunch.
