Year 1 visit Strangers’ Hall

Year 1 have been learning all about old toys as part of their theme work this term, so in March they visited Strangers’ Hall in Norwich.

“We went to Strangers’ Hall museum. We learnt about old toys and made our own moving gingerbread man toys.”

“It was very good fun there.”

“We had a picnic and played in the garden.”

“I would like to go again because I had a really nice time there.”

By Caitlin, Georgina, Max and Edith.

After the trip, being the beautifully mannered pupils that they are, the class sat down to write a thank you letter to the staff at Strangers’ Hall.thank-you-letters4 thank-you-letters3 thank-you-letters2 thank-you-letters

They all enjoyed their time at the museum, especially being shown how to make a gingerbread man who can climb up walls! See all the photos here.

Today, being the beautifully mannered pupils that they are, the class sat down to write a thank you letter to the staff at Strangers’ Hall.

Keep calm and carry on

As part of their GCSE programme, last Friday our Year 11 history students travelled to Time and Tide, Great Yarmouth’s award-winning museum.

They were able to interpret sundry artefacts and leaflets produced for the Home Front during the Second World War.

Laura Tudge donned and endured a gas mask, Erica Nunney created a racket with her rattle, Sophie Beart applied her forensic skills to a variety of German bombs and Amber Batten ensured that there was no panic in the ranks!

The entire platoon managed to pile into a Morrison shelter, which was no mean achievement!
