History

Wednesday 24th May 2023

Today we had a visitor in our history lesson. Kerri used to go to Tanners Wood when she was little and we asked her lots of questions about what it was like. This helped with our learning about local history and it was very interesting to find things out. One of the most interesting things we found was that there used to be a small swimming pool on the KS1 playground - it was empty when Kerri attended but it must’ve been filled once!
