Christ The King RC Primary School

History


History lessons at Christ the King are designed to stimulate children’s curiosity about Britain’s past and that of the wider world. Children will strengthen their ability to ask perceptive questions, think critically, evaluate evidence, and develop perspective and judgement. History contributes to the cultural, social, spiritual and moral life of the children, as they gain an understanding of the process of change, the diversity of society, as well as their own identity and the challenges of their times.

Celebrating 80 Years at Christ the King

On Friday, 25th October 2019, Christ the King RC Primary School celebrated its 80th birthday. We marked the special day with a whole school assembly, where the children were shown pictures from the past and the school’s original Log Book for that very first day! Children performed a celebratory song and there was a carousel of activities to follow, including dances, artwork, and parties.

Both staff and pupils dressed up as evacuees and land girls. This is because the school was only open for two days before war was declared, and everyone had to be evacuated! For dinner, we all enjoyed fish and chips with vinegar wrapped in newspaper. Some of our school governors were also interviewed by the children, allowing them to discover what life was like during the days of the war. It was a marvellous day!


“It was really great to eat fish and chips with vinegar wrapped up in newspaper for our special 80th school celebration. It was how it would have been eaten during the war years.”
- Savannah

“During our 80th celebrations, I really enjoyed wearing our evacuation boxes and learning about what happened to our school during the war, especially about our past Headteachers.” - Murphy
