Amazing flapjacks!

At Wombridge Primary School we are very lucky to have flapjacks every single day! A while ago, class 2 made some flapjacks and found that they have sugar in them.

We have been learning about life in 1605. We now know that the Catholic people felt persecuted by the King and his religious rules. We explored how it felt to be persecuted, we didn’t like it. We pretended that all this group of children weren’t allowed to sit on the carpet. They went off to plot their revenge, just like Guy Fawkes and his friends.
