Highlights included marching on the playground, a street party with authentic 1940s cooking and creative exercises across the various year groups.

Parents were also invited into the classroom on Thursday, March 23 to make historical artefacts with their children and see both creative and visual demonstrations.

Rebecca Loader, deputy head, said it was ‘great’ to be able to show parents all of the pupils’ hard work.
