Year 6 - WW1 & WW2 Visits


As you will know from the topic web you received at the start of term, year 6 are studying WWI and WWII. Therefore, we will be visiting Chislehurst Caves on Thursday 18th October and having the Homefront Bus visit the school on Friday 9th November. The children will experience what it would have been like to shelter from the bombing during WWII in the depths of the caves and board the Homefront Bus to discover daily life in the 1940s.
