Year 5 Trip to Tatton Park 5.4.2017

Today Year 5 went on a trip to Tatton Park / Tatton Dale Home Farm. They were treat like evacuees from start to finish! They all had the chance to experience what life was like for an evacuee on the farm. They learnt about the farm animals and how to milk a cow. They looked inside the house they may have lived in as well as looking at the stables and the equipment used in the land army. They were all  very surprised when the air-raid siren went off at the end of the day too!

The staff there commented on how wonderful the children behaved and that they were a credit to the school. Well done Year 5! Hope you had a great day and learnt lots. I certainly did.

Tell me your favourite part or something you learnt.

Florence explained how she was going to make the hospitals in Scutari cleaner and safer.

Florence explained how she was going to make the hospitals in Scutari cleaner and safer for the soldiers, who had been fighting in the Crimean War. This was because more soldiers were dying due to the poor conditions in the hospital rather than their battle injuries.

The soldiers needed clean beds, sterile bandages, and healthy food.
