This week, we had the exciting opportunity to go on our first school trip in quite a while! As part of our Battle of Britain topic, we headed into Mundesley to explore how the local area defended itself during WWII. We looked at the gun batteries on the cliffs, the unexploded German bomb which now forms part of a memorial on the coast, and visited the grave of the unknown sailor at All Saints Church. We also heard the story of Jack Shannahan, a pilot (and grandfather of a former member of staff at our school and great, great grandfather of one of our pupils) who died defending our local area.
In English, we have started a new unit focusing on Emma Carroll’s memoir, ‘Letters from the Lighthouse’, and explored the experiences of child evacuees. In maths, we have been comparing and ordering numbers to one million which has involved lots of fun place value games!
