'Sunday Best'

Owls, Doves & Eagles have had lots of fun learning all about the different eras, from the 50's to the 90's. Suitcases packed with clothes, footwear, memorabilia and  artefacts for each decade, forming a creative arts project 'Sunday Best'  by Mrs Cerise Ward, were kindly loaned to school as a learning tool.  The children thoroughly enjoyed looking at the artefacts, listening to stories from people who lived through the eras and trying the clothes on. Feedback from the children below..

  • 'I thought it was interesting to see how much clothes have changed over the years'.
  • 'I thought it was amazing how they put baby powder on the floor for dancing'.
  • 'I liked listening to what people said about the clothes they wore when they were younger'.
  • 'I liked looking at the Teddy Boy stuff and platform shoes'.
  • 'I didn't realise people had to mend their socks. I just get a new pair if mine have holes in'.
  • 'I liked the aftershave smells and the perfumes'.
  • 'I liked looking at all the different cases'.

We are delighted to have been placed 83rd in the list of top 200 State Primary Schools, in the Sunday Times Newspaper dated 15th November 2015!
