YEAR 5'S WORLD WAR II ASSEMBLY:

Today, Year 5 showcased to the whole school and to their parents all they have learnt about World War II. They highlighted the impact it had on children in Britain and focused on their lives as evacuees. Everyone was so impressed with their acting, artwork and singing - and it was a delight to see their enthusiasm for sharing their learning in such an entertaining way. They are a credit to our school.

"We all learnt something new about WWII" - Gracie

"I thought the play was interesting and I learnt lots from it." - Lottie
