Hindlip go blackberrying
Our school is in Fernhill Heath and was established in the 19th century as the parish school for the Hindlip estate.
Year 3 and 4 will be getting off to a great start looking at life on the Home Front during WW1, especially the daily life of the women and children left at home.
Activities will include sewing, jam making, propaganda, posters and blackberry picking.
We’re sure the children will be astounded by how different life was then!

During the First World War, the estate was owned by Charles Allsopp, 3rd Baron Hindlip and his family. His wife, Minnie, and daughter-in-law, Agatha, were very influential women and helped to set up wartime organisations such as the Women’s Land Army and the Women’s Federation.
