History Day

We travelled back in time to stage a 'School History Day'. We dressed as Victorians and experienced what it might have been like to be in our school in the late 19th century. We also looked at old photographs, the school log books and most interestingly - the punishment books! 
We worked with Hannah from the Suffolk Records Office and collected items, wrote diaries and wrote our view of the future to put in a time capsule. After the items had been thoroughly dried by the conservator, we buried our time capsule hoping it will be opened in 100 years time.


Years 3 and 4 went to the science fair at Thomas Gainsborough School to work with the older students and teachers.
