Join us on Friday 8 May as we pay tribute to the service and sacrifice of the entire Second World War generation, from British, Commonwealth and Allied Forces to evacuees and those who served on the home front. As we face some of the most challenging times since the end of the Second World War, now more than ever it is important to unite in recognition of service to the nation, just as communities did 75 years ago.
A schedule of events can be found on the website below.
We have also uploaded some nice activities for you to try at home. Send in photographs of your work, creations and celebrations to Mr Farrar, who will arrange for some prizes for the best work.
As part of our Olympic topic the year 5 children choose an Olympian from the past to create using clay. They then used this model to create a presentation for the rest of the class about their chosen athlete.
Red, White and Blue Day was enjoyed by all the children at Ightenhill. Activities were organised to celebrate the centenary of the Battle of the Somme and the Battle of Jutland. Here are some pictures of the children in class three and four, who were making paper boats.
