Serious Swalecliffe Fun

The more schools we visit, the more the team enjoy themselves.  Yesterday we visited Swalecliffe Primary School and found the staff and pupils a real delight to be with.  Thank you for hosting us and for the following comment in our Visitor Book:

"Thank you for a wonderful day.  All our children thoroughly enjoyed their time on the Home Front Bus.  It really brought our learning alive, and the things they have learnt about became real to them.  A fantastic day."

Three Schools in Three Busy Days

We've been working hard this past week and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves in the process.

First we returned to Darrick Wood School, not to focus on the Home Front but on London Transport.  This was a change of theme but Ed and I got stuck in and a good time was had by all.  Thanks to Alison Tanner for posting the following comment on Facebook:

'We were very impressed - we'd loved the Home Front and weren't sure you could enthrall them as much with London Transport but they were so enthusiastic about it all you obviously succeeded! Thank you.'

Next up was Hayes primary School, which was a real delight:

'The children had a fantastic time.  Excellent input and successful day. Thank you'

Our third day was spent at Churchill Primary School, Westerham where heavy rain couldn't dampen the enthusiasm of the pupils, the staff or the team:

'The children have had the most wonderful day, such wonderful input and friendly staff.  They have all learnt so much and the bus has really helped to bring history to life.  Thank you so much.'

Congratulations also to Churchill School as several of their pupils are the only ones so far to recognise an ARP issue Bible when they see one!

Driving home from Westerham I was unsure whether I was driving a bus or piloting a boat.  Dark, flooded roads and continual torrential rain made it all very interesting.  Now where did I leave my voice?
