D Day 80th Anniversary at Samuel Laycock


D Day 80th Anniversary



On Thursday we marked the 80th anniversary of D Day at Samuel Laycock School.  

BBC Teach assemblies have been shared with classes which included footage with the real voices of soldiers.

Engagement pathway made some parachutes and soldiers out of lollypop sticks after watching the video of soldiers jumping out of the planes.

7WJ designed a medal, completed reading comprehensions and presented their own information.

In the performing Arts Pathway, all pupils and staff dressed up in 40s headgear from their costume wardrobe and the pupils watched BBC footage with voices of real soldiers who survived  D Day.  They also listened to the most popular music of the 1940s and heard some extracts from the D Day memoirs of Mrs Loughran’s Uncle Frank, who was a paratrooper in the Airborne unit, when he was just 19.
