We are working with Woodhead Construction who are upgrading the houses on the Model Village. They supported a competition for decorating an Easter Hard Hat, with prizes for the winning pupils.
Heritage Project on the Model
Y3, Y4 and Y5 have been involved in a heritage project this week. They had to do activities including: Map work, making our own model village, exploring old photos and comparing them to new places and exploring the model. They had loads of fun and Y4 student Summer Clark-Price says “It’s a very interesting topic” also Y4 student Beau Ashley says “I thought it was SUPER fun and I can’t wait to do more!” Also they found out some facts about the model: They started building it in 1891 and finished it in 1896, there are 194 houses. There are some games that they played like: Orientating, Compass Work and Designing our own model village. They also went into the builders’ site. They had loads of fun!!!
