Grandparents & Special Friends’ Morning

There was a lovely sense of calm and respect as the Year 1 boys celebrated a busy term with their Grandparents and Special Friends. The morning opened with the boys performing ‘Those Magnificent Men on their Flying Machines’ and ‘Truly Scrumptious’.

The boys then hosted their guests in the classroom with activities around our Humanities Unit on Past and Present. Our overall Learning Intention for the term was to research the history of the School and for the boys to investigate the links between BGS in the past and their own school lives.

The room was busy with our visitors sharing stories of school life in the past and comparing these to the boys’ experiences today, and plotting their findings on a Venn diagram.

The boys shared eBooks they had created on BGS school life in the past and today using photographs and text provided to illustrate the differences over time.
