The children in year 6 have settled well, and on Thursday last week we received a visit from the eccentric Professor McGinty. He’s a time travelling detective and he came along with his mobile museum to kick start our topic this year “What Britain and the 20th Century has done for us”.
He was just fabulous- he taught us all about the 1st and 2nd World Wars and some of the children got to dress up in WWII costumes. Various artefacts were passed around such as; gas masks and ration books, and the children were allowed to handle weapons from the time. (This went down particularly well with the boys!)
It was an amazing morning and we now have a wealth of knowledge to use in our topic work and writing.
Take a look at the photos!
