Excellent visit today. Accompanied the Headteacher on learning walks to observe Key Stage 2 classes. Started by admiring the fabulous World War 1 exhibition that was taking shape near the Staff Room. The theme continued in all of the KS2 classes. Some fabulous work and the children were totally absorbed by the topic. Year 6 were particularly impressive with their enquiring minds and analysis of the reliability of source material. The shoebox WW1 trenches were also fantastic and it was great to see the excellent community spirit with many parents coming in to work with their children on the project. The children obviously loved what they were doing and told me what life must have been like in the trenches, particularly the rats and trench-foot!
