Learning from the past

Emily involved her son’s class at Wimborne St Giles primary school in her work to collect stories of the lives of children in the 1930s.   They invited in a couple who had both attended the school in the late 1930s and 40s.  The children interviewed the couple.  We found out about how the children used to walk to and from school and how they used to grow all the vegetables for their school lunches – and have a surplus for families to take home.  One child asked what colour the animals were which showed a good appreciation that things were different in the past!
