Our first school trip…we will be taking part in a “Day in the life of an evacuee”, on Tuesday 2nd October at Tatton Park. During our visit, the land girls, who worked at Tatton during the war, will set the children to work, introduce them to the animals they will help to look after and sing popular wartime songs in the air raid shelter. Aunt Mary who lives in the Farm cottage, will show the evacuees their new home, discuss rationing and produce food cooked on a range as well as talking about household chores and teaching some local and national history.
Residential in the first half of the Summer TermActivity break to be confirmed…..
