Grandparents Day

Thursday was also Grandparents Day for the Junior School. We had loads of Nanas, Poppa, Grandmas and Grandads come in to share our learning. We took them all to the hall to listen to our singing and they seemed to enjoy it.

We also interviewed our Grandparents. Here are some interesting things that we learnt.

My Granddad didn't use a typewriter at school, he used a dip pen. Zoe

My Nana rode a horse and then went on a bus to school. Greta

My Grandma used a pencil at school and then she used a fountain pen. Hugh
