Peartree History Day was a roaring success! Children across the school were dressed from all different eras, ranging from the Ancient Greeks right up to the 1940s. Reception classes took part in the day by playing numerous playground games, such as hopscotch and tiddlywinks. KS1 were dressed to match their Great Fire of London topic; they recreated a cardboard Pudding Lane that was later put out by the local fire brigade. LKS2 were studying the Ancient Greeks and their activities included recreating battles and Greek artwork. Years 5 and 6 spent the day dressed as if they were in the 1940s. They role played evacuee children whilst the adults posed as billeting officers. In the afternoon, they were lucky to receive four visitors who were all children themselves during WW2 and a Q&A session was held in the school hall.
Everyone strutted along the catwalk showing off their crafty costumes and Mrs. Lyons, Mrs. Bellwood and Mrs. Pratt had the difficult job of judging their outfits. There could only be two winners though: congratulations to Ella in Y3 with her Medusa headdress and Parker in Y1 who was like a real life character from 1666.
