As part of our school wide project, celebrating 50 years of Holcombe Brook, the children in y4/5 have been looking at real sources (a school log book from the 1970s & 80s, photographs, emails and a newspaper article) to learn more about events of the past.
They were shocked to discover that there was a fire in school in 1983! They imagined what it would be like to be a pupil during that time and wrote very emotive diary entries.
Do you have any information about the fire? Were you a pupil here in 1983? The children have lots of questions left unanswered and we’d love to hear from anyone involved. If you can help then send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
