Our Bicentenary Celebrations

Our bicentenary celebrations were absolutely brilliant. Many pupils (and staff) dressed up and really looked the part. 

The children had some old-fashioned lessons including rote learning and using pretend slates. The playground games were all traditional and our older children did lots of sewing.

We even had an 1821 style lunch with boiled swede and cabbage. 

We are sending letters to the residents of the village to see which are the oldest memories that we can collect and will share any that we get.

The older children made zines (mini booklets) with Rachael and Polly from the Museum of Half Truths.

The local media were very interested, and we had a film crew visit. We were featured on East Midlands Today, Central News and BBC Radio Derby. (Click on the names to see the reports).
