WW1 commemoration at the school.
Ian talked to the children about impact of the war on the village. Using the example of the poppies at the Tower of London to describe the enormity of the loss, he then focused on the individual tragedies that this meant for village families. Later on, children made some exquisite poppies themselves.
The history of Titchmarsh School.
Linking in with the school’s open week, members of the History Association gave a presentation to parents and children on the history of the school. Among the themes were the contrasts between the Victorian school and that in the 1930s and 40s; the evolution of the May Queen celebrations; the nurturing of country dancing: and personal memories of different headteachers.
