Year 5 and 6 have experienced half a day each with Karen from the Norfolk Archive Service to help with their understanding of the locality we live in. She brought in details of the 1901 census for Stibbard, copies of the school log books from 1915 (you could receive 2 strikes for being late!) as well as details about the local trades that used to be in Stibbard. How times have changed! We no longer have the blacksmith, the bakery, the post office or the village shop, not even a pub nearby.
It was all very interesting, especially when we realised that Horace Eggleton who is remembered on the War Memorial came to the school and was entered in the punishment book for being late when he was 12!
Year 6 will be having a walk around Stibbard on Monday to look more closely at the buildings, fields and land around Stibbard. They will need waterproof coats and their wellies please. Year 5 will be doing this on Thursday 24th September, once again wellies and coats will be needed.
