Year 6’s trip to Bishops Park
On Friday 12th May, Year 6 went to Bishops Park in Fulham as an after SATs treat. We had to walk through all the back roads and even over Putney Bridge to get there. When we finally arrived at Bishops Park everyone ran straight to the adventure playground. It was really fun! There were swings, a huge climbing frame, spinning tyres and a long slide. Later in the day, the fountains turned on and everyone jumped around in the water and played in the sand. An hour later we ate lunch and then we all played a huge game of football in the field. Before we knew it, it was time to go back to school. We can’t wait to go back!

Year 6 – World War 2
On Wednesday, 8th March, it was amazing when two evacuees came to visit us and talk about World War 2. They were very nice and told us lots of great stories about their lives during that time. We got to ask curious questions about World War 2 and what it was like to live through. We found out amazing things; most toilets were outside, and once a plane came so quickly there wasn't time for the warning sirens to go off. In another story, they were so desperate to go home they even tried to borrow money from their foster family to sneak on a train (but unfortunately the door was locked). They also told us about the blackout which was when people were told every night to turn off all the lights and put up black curtains to block out all light. This was to trick the Nazis into thinking no one was living there. Did you know that food was rationed due to the Germans trying to sink all the cargo ships which meant you could only have a little bit of some things? Overall, this was a great experience and we all enjoyed it.

Year 6 trip to the Imperial War Museum
On Tuesday, 24th January Year 6 went to the Imperial War Museum in Central London. We walked across the slippery pavements to Putney Station and then took a train to Waterloo. We explored the war museum and learnt about World War 2. After a quick lunch break and a few more minutes exploring, we started the tiring trip home. Overall it was a really nice experience and it was a fantastic trip!
