Friday evening has arrived and time to look back on another amazing week here at Wainscott.
I know I say this often but we really have an amazing school. The children and staff have worked so hard this week getting the work finished for next week's World War One Exhibition. The displays are already appearing and it should be a great week.
I put some details on the newsletter and parents, grand parents, family, friends and the wider community really should try to get along to our school hall on either Wednesday, Thursday or Friday as it promises to be a fab event.
On top of the exhibition, we also have two days of workshops for the children to enjoy.
On Tuesday they will all be working with members of our local historical society, sharing their research and finding out about other soldiers involved in the War. They will see some artefacts and get the chance to ask every question they can come up with.
On Thursday we have a history company www.theyshallgrownotold.org.uk in to run workshops. Here the children will get the chance to talk to WW1 characters, ask questions and see more memorabilia and artefacts.
I will be in school tomorrow filling sandbags with sand and beginning to set the hall up for Wednesday. We even have the Lead officer for Medway schools visiting next Wednesday morning to look around the school and the exhibition.
Finally a request. If you have an old step ladder or short wooden ladder that you no longer need that I could use for a WW1 trench display I'd be oh so very grateful!
Enjoy the fireworks and hope to see you all next week.
