Year 6 Trip to London November 2014
Some of our Year 6 children had a trip to London to visit the Palace of Westminster where they had a tour around the House of Lords and House of Commons and met our local MP Eric Ollerenshaw.
A visit to the Natural History Museum was next on the agenda followed by a guided tour round London to see the sights - including Big Ben, the Shard, London Eye, and Poppy display in the moat at the Tower of London!
To mark the Centenary of the start of the First World War, we had a visit on Monday from the accomplished mezzo soprano, Patricia Hammond and her accompanianist, Matt Redman.
They entertained the Junior children and staff with a selection of songs from the First World War era "If you were the only girl in the world", "It's a long way to Tipperary", "Over There" and "Somewhere in France"
The children sang along with "Pack up your troubles" and had a very memorable morning.
In French this week the children were comparing Remembrance in France and England.
