Welcome to year six
Our wonderful home learning
We are really proud of Year 6 and how they are working so hard at home. It has been wonderful to see some of this through pictures that have been sent in.
Our school trip to the stockport air raid shelters
Year 6 visited the Stockport Air Raid Shelters on the 11th of March and had an amazing time. The Stockport Air Raid Shelters are a system of almost 1 mile of underground air-raid shelters dug under Stockport, six miles south of Manchester, during World War II to protect local inhabitants during air raids. It was a fantastic experience to see and experience these air raid shelters.
We were evacuees for the day and got to experience so many wonderful things such as a rationed lunch. The adults from the museum were in character and made us feel like we were really going to be evacuated.
I hope you enjoy looking back at these pictures.
What was your favourite part of the trip? Please email email@example.com and share your favourite memories with us.
Some of our favourite memories were;
'My favourite memory was when we looked at the gas masks and what to do in case of a gas mask drill. I liked it because it was so different to things we have to do today.' Tom
'My favourite memory of the school trip is the museum (with Miss Grundy and Mrs Hodkinson) because we got to participate and it was fun trying everything out. I enjoyed being treated like and evacuee, as well.'
'My favourite part was when we saw the old toilets because there was a story of two kids who made a paper boat put in the toilet.' Jarvis
