Students do wonderful Worle history investigations into World War Two

By Jayden, Rose and Holly, ages 9 and 10, Jill Dando News

Year 5 students visited a nearby secondary school to learn history in their quest to know more about World War 2.

The pupils from Castle Batch Primary School Academy (CBPSA) in Weston-super-Mare, North Somerset visited Worle Community School Academy’s history department.

When they arrived at WCSA they started one of their series of activities.

Kira (a student who went on the trip) said: “I really enjoyed the baking and was thrilled by the end results”


During the trip the pupils of Castle Batch held real items used in the war and enjoyed listening to the history of their surrounding area.

Mrs Depledge said: “What an amazing time we had. The pupils enjoyed the series of events from baking to dancing - they enjoyed it all.”

While dancing, the children had fun experiencing the ways of dancing happened during the war era.

Castle Batch has just enjoyed receiving an impressive clean sweep of Good ratings with an overall Good judgement from Ofsted.

Both Castle Batch and WCSA are part of The Priory Learning Trust.

Next Tuesday the 13th September, WCSA will host prospective pupils and their families at their Open Evening from 4pm.

The WCSA motto is ‘We Challenge and Support to Achieve’. The academy has a high-achieving and caring ethos, aiming to challenge and support to encourage all students to achieve.

TPLT also has one of the best school-based Sixth Forms in the country at The King Alfred School Academy in Highbridge, which is an increasingly popular destination for Weston-super-Mare students.
