Straw Crowns

The girls of Hockney class have been busy making straw crowns ready for the Harvest assembly.

We are exploring harvest time in Poland, where the village girl wears a straw crown and a cockerel is placed on her head. If the cockerel crows then this will bring good luck to the girl!


Evacuee Letters

Hockney class have been busy creating evacuee letters as part of their World War Two topic.

If you get chance come in and see our display board once they're finished! Superb effort everyone!
