Children at Westmeads are confident in talking about what History is and how we can learn about it. They speak enthusiastically about what they have learnt here at Westmeads but were also able to talk about things they had learnt outside of school. They particularly enjoyed the role play days when we all dressed up as Victorians and had Victorian style activities and when Mr Wraight dressed up as Samuel Pepys. They mentioned that when they dressed up as Victorians they could imagine what school was like then.
