We had a lovely class trip out yesterday in Potters Bar tying together the pieces of our History work that we have done in class on ‘Potters Bar at War’.  The children walked to St Mary’s Cemetery to research and find the war graves they have been learning about in class and then moved onto the War Memorial outside Oakmere Park. The class then walked through the park to Tempest Avenue and Wulstan Park which are famous as on October 1, 1916, the Luftschiffe 31 airship fell burning to the ground after it was shot down by 2nd Lt Wulstan Joseph Tempest.

After having our lunch in the park and playing on the equipment in the play area, which was erected in remembrance of the Zeppelin marking the airship shot down in 1916, we walked on through Parkside to Our Lady and St Vincent’s Church to see the special memorial for the victims that died in the 1940 bombing and the wooden statue of Our Lady that survived. We prayed together and some children read their prayers for the victims of both WWI and WWII.

Well done goes to the House Captains of St Francis, Elle and Tymon, who led the whole-school assembly on the Feast of St Francis.  They spoke clearly and confidently and it was a delight to see them oversee a special playtime with the rest of the house team members later that morning.

At Lunchtime today, the Liturgy Group led their first decade of the rosary with children from both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 classes.  The rosary will be led next Thursday lunchtime.

Wishing you a lovely weekend.
