2) Local History research

On Wednesday 8th June 2022, we will be visiting Brandwood End cemetery to study war memorials.

Please complete your own research by asking grandparents, parents, neighbours or friends if they have any pictures or resources we could use to support this: including pictures or statements of past pupils; any photographs, maps, diary entries or newspaper clippings or any sources you are able to share.

 

Remember: We have our first swimming lesson on Tuesday 7th June, so you need to get together you swimming costume/trunks, swimming caps and towels.
