We have been very lucky to have a visit from a local history expert, who brought copies of records about Bressingham, including maps, photographs, Census information, Trade Directories and transcripts of these, to enable us to read them more easily.
There were lots of activities, that helped us to understand what life was like at the start of the twentieth century- about 1900:
What were houses like?
What were families like?
How many people lived in houses together?
How old were people?
What were their jobs?
Where would you go to buy soap, Easter cards, ginger beer, wheels, and many other things?
Where were these places that you could go to buy things in or near to Bressingham?

Everybody was so impressed with the show- Kestrel Class put on an amazing performance and had a standing ovation from the audience. Well done to all!

After the preliminary rounds, the finalists spent this afternoon baking with the theme of 'Wonderland'. Here are the finalists with their cakes...
Our judge was Mrs Ann Morgan, Clerk to the Governors, who enjoys baking herself...
Mr King had been the contestants' able assistant all afternoon, as evidenced by the flour on his trousers!
But who would be the winners?
Some passed time by eating some of their cakes...

These days are a wonderful opportunity for our children to become more familiar with the High School and meet some of the people they may meet there- staff and children.
Today we took part in a rounders competition and here are our teams- sometimes sensible and sometimes (encouraged to be) silly!
And our winning team (one of 4 winning teams):
Despite it being one of the hottest days of the year so far, everyone enjoyed their games in the morning. Years 5 and 6 did a great job organising their teams and helping the younger children.
We managed to find lots of shady places for the children when they were waiting for their turn, or even when they were doing the activities sometimes.
Everyone in Kestrel Class was a team leader- one of our 100 memorable events...
