Topic – our Geography/History focus this term is ‘Our Local Area-How and why is it changing?’ –  The children will reflect on  the different causes and consequences of  changes in our environment and  consider whether we might benefit or be affected negatively by them.

Can anyone identify the boys (now men in their 80’s) in this picture?  Boys football team 1947

Do you have any information or old photographs about the school which will show the children how it has changed?
