Year 6 Residential - extra photos
We had an exciting journey to Hooke Court for our residential. When we first arrived we settled into are dorms. Later on, year 6 explored what it was like to be a soldier in WW1 and year 6 actually went into a trench. When the instructor explained all the information we needed to know, we climbed the ladder and ran screaming towards the teachers (Everybody had fun! As night fell Mr Wright read us all a bedtime story, and we all walked back to our rooms feeling especially ‘sleepy’.
The next day everybody had a very delicious breakfast we were all ready to do our morning activity. We first learnt about the different types of bombs and how a specific bomb an incendiary bomb, couldn't be put out with fire. Afterwards we sat in an air raid shelter and experienced what it would be like if planes were overhead or bombs were dropped. When the activity was finished we had some time to do whatever we wanted to do. Afterwards we had lunch of sandwiches, fruit, biscuits and a yoghurt. After that we had our final activity of learning to write in ink and learning the different prices of money like shillings pounds and farthings. We can't forget our fantastic baking either - lots of treats were made, thinking about how ingredients were rationed during the war.
