YEAR 3 King’s Ely Junior pupils had a whale of a time during their 1940’s themed History Off The Page day on June 4th.

Children and staff were transported to the imaginary village of Comberwick, October 1940. Once there, they spent the morning at school and the afternoon at the shops, to which the children’s parents and families were also invited along to join in on the fun.

Teacher of Year 3, Kirsty Chenery, said: “The children thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to interact with the genuine artefacts and rose to the challenge of working with real currency from the era. They also enjoyed sharing the experience and celebrating their learning with so many parents during the afternoon. Thank you to all of those who were able to join us and to everyone for dressing the children (and themselves, in some cases!) in keeping with the day.”
