Y6 Victorian ExperienceBaker Boy
Tatton Hall opened its servants’ entrance to a group of hopeful new recruits from Hazlehurst school recently. The children (and staff) had to roll up their sleeves and work hard all day in an attempt to impress the house-keeper and try to get a job as a servant. They scrubbed the floors, polished the silver, made the beds, and even baked scones for afternoon tea! What super servants they were! We were pleased to say that they were all hired at the end of the day!
Then it was time to head back to school in the year 2014 for a good  rest!
Tatton Park sent us a letter about how our children behaved and joined in on their visit. We are very proud of them! Tatton Park Letter.

Lest We ForgetDrummer Boy
The Y4 children took part in the 2014 Service of Remembrance when they visited Bury Fusilier Museum on the 11th of November. We were very proud of the dignified way in which they showed their respect for the brave soldiers who lost their lives in the war.
After the service there was a chance to learn more about life during the war years, including attending a war-time wedding!

Everyone enjoyed a taste of the Caribbean on our recent Samba Day.

It was great fun!

It was all action down on the farm for Y3 as they experienced the life of evacuees from Manchester arriving at Tatton Park Farm in 1941. They fed the animals, learned how to milk cows, looked after the horses and made toast with aunt Mary.
Then it was time to go ‘back to the future’ for a rest back at school. Phew!
