Working as Historians

Take Cover!

21st January 2020

What a fantastic day! Heigham class have been exploring the school grounds and the rich history of Wensum School. Did you know that we had 10 Air Raid Shelters in the playing field in WW2! Heigham class have been working as historians discovering where these shelters were. They were big. From old technical drawings we found the shelters were 14 metres long. That’s longer than a bus!

There’s no evidence left in the field today, though that didn’t stop us using our mapping skills and curiosity to unleash the past into the present.
