Heaton Park Trip

Today, 45 Year 5 pupils visited Heaton Park to mark the centenary of the Battle of the Somme. We visited the specially created ‘Path of Remembrance’ and then headed across the mud to an activity where we learnt about the crucial contribution that women made to the war effort. After this activity, we listened to a talk by Rob Thompson who told us how shells were made and then transported to the frontlines. The amount of shells and bullets that were made and used during the Battle of the Somme (and during the entirety of WW1) was astonishing! Lastly, we visited the Tramway Museum, where we had a ride on a tram and learnt about how they were used during the war years.
