Firstly we arrived enthused and ready for what was ahead. Parents came to join us for the exiting activities (Mrs James, Mrs Critchley and Mrs Young.)
Here are some pictures of the activities that the first group did in the morning …

On Thursday Mrs Tennent very kindly came in to talk to us about her experience in the war. She told us all about being evacuated and her experience in air-raids and air-raid shelters in World War 2.
It was extremely interesting and we all enjoyed her coming and learnt very much. She had still got her teddy which is 80 years old!
One of Mrs Tennent’s worst memories was when they had gone away for a week and whilst they were away the house behind their house had been bombed. Unfortunately, her family also found that their house had been badly damaged.
This week Monday the 20th to Friday the 24th November 2017 YR6 had a maths Quiz with Stoke Poges, we gave our selves a team name and a nick name for each person in the team. We got into groups of 2, 3 or 4. Our classes did 3 quizzes, there was a 1st, 2nd & 3rd place for the top three groups that competed.
