Hello world!

Hello and welcome to our ‘knowledge and understanding week’ blog. We are so excited to be holding a Victorian Time Traveller week. The photograph at the top was actually taken at our school!

During the week, we will be participating in different themed workshops as we travel back in time to learn more about life in the past. Our focus is ‘inventions’ and we will be holding our own ‘Great Exhibition’ for pupils and parents to visit on Friday afternoon.

If you have visited our site by chance, please leave a comment as we would love to know who you are and where you are from 🙂
