This morning, Year Five were lucky to have a visit from Dee, the Head Teacher of Mayflower Primary School. She talked to us all about the bombing of Upper North Street School during World War One. In 1917 a bomb fell on the school and passed through three floors before killing innocent children.

This term we will be learning about this event, as well as learning about what it was like to live in Poplar at this time. Year Five will be participating in the Angel of Poplar event in June which will mark the centenary of this devastating event in local history.
