Lancashire Archives
Year three and four have been very lucky to be visited by David Tildsley from the Lancashire Archives who has come to support their learning about local history in their theme: There's No Place Like Home. David will be visiting the children three times over the half term, sharing some primary sources about Accrington, its mills and its people in the past. Thank you, David.

Year 3 & 4 Samba Experience

 Year 3 and 4 have been learning all about Brazil in their theme, 'Samba in the Sun.' They were visited by local percussionist Tony Moss who spent time with each class introducing them to a range of percussion instruments and Samba rhythms. Everybody had lots of fun trying to follow the rhythms.

WWII Evacuee Party

As a part of their theme, 'We'll Meet Again,'  Y5 and Y6 children planned a street party celebrating the end of the war in Europe.  They made decorations for their party: flags for the Allied powers, gas masks and a bunting banner for each class. On the day, each class, with their shopping list, went to LIDL to buy party food. All the children and teachers had a fabulous time reliving the end of the war, eating food and listening to music from that era.

A Day at the Museum

Year 3 and 4 visited two different museums as part of WW1 theme: The Museum of Lancashire and the Lancashire Infantry museum. The children learnt about life in the trenches and spent time in a lifelike trench, wearing helmets and ringing the warning bell for danger. They also looked at the role of a nurse. They went on to learn how to become soldiers and signed up for service. They enjoyed following drill commands and the Colour Sergeant shouted his orders very very loudly but it was exciting and lots of fun.
