On the 4th March Class Four Visited RAF Waddington Heritage Centre as part of our local history project. They worked with teen fiction author G L Twynham on a heroes theme. She talked to the children about the superheroes in her own books and encouraged the children to explore what makes a super hero. Click here to learn more about G L Twynham.

We then went and learnt about the brave air crews who flew from Waddington during WWII. Here the children are standing next to the remains of a crashed Lancaster, looking very different to 'Just Jane' they saw at the start of the week. 

IMG_2247.JPG

We ended the day with chance to dress up as air crew ourselves. The RAF personel looked after us very well and we went home with lots of new ideas.

On the 1st march 2016 Class Four visited East Kirkby Aviation Museum with Class Four from Martin. We learned about the Lancaster bomber 'Just Jane' and what it was like for the air crew who flew her during the Second World War. Although it is a buitiful historical artefact it must have been terrifying to fly in over enemy territory.

 Lincolnshire is known as 'bomber county' because there were so many airfields here. Our school is close to one of the largest airfields at Metheringham so it is part of our local history.

We also learnt about what it was like to be an evacuee, this was a bit tiring for some of us!

On Monday 12th October we held a conkers day. It was a long time since any child had played conkers at Walcott and we thought this was rather sad!  It was lovely to have a layground full of children playing conkers, and no, they didn't have to wear goggles.

On the 6th of October we were visited by Mrs Coldhurst who was a teacher at Walcott until 1985. Now in her 90's she wanted to come back and see how things have changed. She was amazed at how the school has been developed and

thought the classrooms were wonderful. She recalled how she had to fetch coal to keep the classroom fire going in the winter! She said that the rooms soon started to smell like wet laundry when the fire was in. In her day the toilets were outdoors, and at lunch time children washed their hands in a communal outdoor sink. The hot water came from the kitchen they had (Yes the school actually had its own kitchen in those days!).
