YOUNGSTERS at a Newsome primary school spent a day ‘Discovering Britain’.
The project was followed by 149 students aged between 7 and 11, at Stile Common Junior School as they found out more about Britain.
Each class learned about something different that Britain had to offer. The topics included major cities, wildlife, famous landmarks, queens and kings, great engineers and London.
At the end of the day display boards were posted in each classroom showing what the students discovered and how much they learnt.
Mrs Jane Barff, a teacher at the school, said: “A lot of people go on foreign holidays, hardly any people go to Blackpool.
“It seems these days children know more about exotic and far-flung places than they do about their own background. It was therefore deemed a good idea to introduce them to the country they call home.”
