We are finally allowed to go on fieldwork!
This expedition we have been studying Nazi Germany and have read our anchor text, Number The Stars, about the Nazi occupation of Denmark and how Danish Jews were smuggled to safety from Denmark to Sweden. However, many European Jews were victims of the Holocaust. For our fireldwork, we are attending the National Holocaust Centre in Newark. As well as speaking to experts and looking at the exhibitions, we will also hopefully be priveleged enough to receive a talk by a Holocaust survivor.
Students will need to arrive at school at the normal time and attend Crew to be registered. We advise students to dress appropriately should there be unpleasant weather, when travelling to and from the coaches. Students will also need a packed lunch and sufficient water for the day. Please don’t pack any products containing nuts in packed lunches as we are a nut-free school! The journey to and from Newark is only expected to take around 40-60 minutes, so snacks and drinks without lids are not permitted on the coaches.
We aim to arrive back at school at around 3.15pm, however due to the unpredictability of traffic, we may be slightly later than 3.15pm.
