On Thursday afternoon Classes 3 and 4 went to St Giles Church in Cropwell Bishop to perform a Carol Concert to their parents. The church was packed and everyone had a great time, with the parents joining in with some of the songs. A big thanks to Hilary and Ann from the church who made this all possible.

Also, on Friday afternoon the school choir, led by Mrs Trevers and Miss Woodward, attended the Old School to perform a Carol Concert to residents of Cropwell Bishop after they had had their Christmas lunch. The concert was greatly enjoyed by all!

Class 4 - World War Two Trip to Perlethorpe

Wednesday 16th November 2022

Class 4 became Evacuees for the day, they experienced what it was like in the classroom during World War Two and were then told who they would be billeted with from the Perlethorpe Estate. They played a suitcase game where they had to guess who the suitcase belonged to and were able to try on the different artefacts in the case. 

The children also experienced what it was like during an air raid and we went to see a World War Two tank.








Class 3 - Viking/Anglo Saxon Trip to Perlethorpe

Friday 11th November 2022

Today Class 3 were transported back in time to the Anglo Saxon and Viking times. The children learnt what it was like to live during those times and what their day would have been like. They were dressed up in Anglo Saxon tunics and visited both an Anglo Saxon and Viking house.



They went on an orienteering challenge to locate markers containing a Ruin and then they had to translate the ruin into a letter and identify the person.


We also held out 2 minutes silence around the flagpole at Perlethorpe Church.




The children also got to handle replicas of Viking swords, axes, shields and helmets.
