Recent Trips and Visitors

We had Adrian from Blast to the Past to visit us to run a WW2 workshop.  We had a chance to listen to Churchill’s speeches and then right our own; to play a game with propaganda posters; to re-enact the Blitz bombing with a smoke machine and lights and finally to make our own WW2 plans.

 Visit to the Roman Fort at Calstock with thanks for Kat and Ann for showing us around, Mr Caboche and Mrs Wickett for driving and to Mrs White and Mrs Thomson for coming along.
