What We Have Been Up To

Here you will find all the exciting things we have been up to recently.

Thursday 9th November

On Thursday evening the year 6 children (dressed as evacuees) boarded a train from Balcombe station to Three Bridges. After a brisk walk to school they spent the evening playing games and singing songs from the 1940’s and then settled down for the night.

The next morning the children experienced what life would have been like living during the war. The girls enjoyed knitting, baking, sandwich making and basic first aid and the boys learnt knot tying, working in the woods and also how to treat burns and scalds.

After a delicious lunch (thank you girls!) we re-lived the war years thanks to the Rainbow Theatre Company. Friday ended with our evacuees being picked by some very lovely host families.
