Battle of the Somme Centenary - July 2016 

Jules Wooding from the Cumbrian Museum of Military Life gave a presentation to KS2 about The Battle of the Somme. Her talk focused on the many local men who served in the Border Regiment during World War One. She also discussed her own personal link to the Somme. An interesting and thought provoking afternoon - Thank you Jules.

 

Here are some photographs of the History work we have been doing...

Red, White and Blue Day - 13th November 2014 

The children dressed up in red, white and blue clothing on Thursday 13th November to raise money for various military charities. We ended the day by holding a concert in the hall for all of the children and parents. The concert began with an interesting talk by Jules Wooding from the Cumbria Museum of Military Life. The children were encouraged to answer questions posed by Jules and she was impressed with their level of enthusiasm.  Children from years Two, Four and Six then performed a variety of songs and recited poetry from WW1. We finished the concert by asking all the children, staff and parents to join in with the well known song 'Pack Up Your Troubles' which was a lot of fun! Parents stayed after the performance to view work that the children had completed on the Centenary and to enjoy a cup of tea and a poppy biscuit. A fabulous afternoon was had by all!
