What a really creative and explorative afternoon we had working in year 3/4 . We delved into the history of the school. All the way back to 1566 when the school was chartered by Elizabeth 1. We found out that girls would not have gone to this school and things were very different to life in school now. There were no tracks, roads and path the school and all children would have had to walk to get here. School started at 6am in the summer and 7am in the winter. oh how early they must have set off to get to school on time.. and they didn’t have wellies, waterproofs or umbrellas in those days.
We looked at the way the school was built then in timber and we sketched and printed our own versions. We then made printing blocks and inked and made our own black and white prints.
