Welcome to Year 3!
On 30th November the children enjoyed their Local History Day, focusing on the Longbridge factory. In the morning, we learnt all about the history of the factory: starting with Lord Herbert Austin in 1905, to learning about how the factory was utilised during the World Wars, to the many strikes when the factory formed with British Leyland, to its closure in 2005. And not forgetting everything that came in between!
The children used all of this information to write an acrostic poem about the factory. Above you will see some examples of the children's fantastic work!
In the afternoon, we were joined by a special visitor who had worked in at Longbridge for 7 years. She shared with us lots of pictures of herself test driving the cars and inside the factory.
This is one of our favourites!
