Local History Study Exit Point

Posted on by wrightr

As our exit point, Jacob from Codswallop came to visit our school. He helped us to bring our recent history topic to life through drama. We learnt about Harry Ramsden and the famous Harry Corbett (writer of the Sooty Show) both of whom were born in Guiseley. We explored what it might have been like to have been inside Harry Ramsden’s restaurant or what Blackpool was like as this is where Harry bought the original Sooty puppet. We played lots of drama games, role played and freeze-framed lots of different scenarios. We all really enjoyed it! Here are some pictures from our morning.
