This workshop is perfect to support year-round learning as well as the following important events in your year planner:

  • Remembrance Day (11th November)

This was a unique presentation of a little-known area of history for many of the children. The session was clever and engaging – it was an excellent idea to carry forward the knowledge of the Great Grandfather’s diary.
