Have you ever played Space Invaders?

 

It was one of the first ever popular video games in the 1980’s. Before everyone had computers at home they used to play games such as Space Invaders on arcade machines like this one here:

You can play a version of the game here which also helps us become very fast at typing.  Click the link below

See you all on the 1st of November!

Lincolnsfield World War II Experience

Posted in Uncategorized on October 12, 2010 by Mr Davy

I am sure that you are all feeling tired after such an action packed day!

Year 4 found out what evacuation must have been like for children in 1939. After arriving at the village hall  the evacuees were given instructions by the billeting officer. A while later groups spilt off and took part in a variety of exciting and interesting activities. Amongst them included; rushing to a bomb shelter during an Air Raid, digging for worms in the Dig for Victory garden so that we could feed the chickens, exploring a 1940’s house, learning about life for civilians during the war, learning about a soldier’s life and handling WWII artefacts, as well as being transported in the back of a US Army van which was used in the D-Day landings!

As usual, every one of you represented Wroxham incredibly well. You were all polite, enthusiastic and had excellent answers. Thank you Year 4.

Here are some selected photos from our visit.
