Beckbury goes back in time

Pupils at Beckbury Primary turned time travellers recently with two exciting days of historical exploration. Blossom Tree Class (KS2) were transported back to the days of WWII by their teachers and joined in the fun by donning period costumes and cooking wartime recipes – “the Spam pie was my favourite!” said pupil Jessica Field. The children’s topic, Blitz and Pieces, will continue all term, culminating in Strictly Comes to Beckbury, when the children will have the chance show off the Lindy Hop moves they have learnt in Dance and PE.

“Immersive creative curriculum days really bring history to life for our children,” explains the school’s Lisa Holt. Earlier in the term, Chestnut Tree Class’s KS1 children travelled back to Ancient Egypt as part of their Tomb Raiders topic. The children were thrilled to handle genuine Egyptian artefacts thanks to Shropshire Museum Services and they entered into the spirit of the day with costumes fit for a Pharaoh and a range of challenges.
