This week, Year 3 have been on a school trip to Romford to visit the local memorials at St. Edwards Church and the Romford Cross. Jim Bolton, a local historian, spoke to the children about the World War 1 memorial plaque on the church walls, documenting some local soldiers who sadly lost their lives in the Great War. Jim kindly passed around a soldiers sweet tin that belonged to his father in the great war (you can see this below).
We then visited the Romford Cross and had a class discussion about the importance of memorials and Remembrance Day. It was a very informative day and the children learned a lot about British History during WW1.
