World Down Syndrome Day

As some of you will know we have a child with Down Syndrome who attends Tickford Park. To raise awareness of this condition, there is a World Down Syndrome Day that takes place on the 21st March. This date – the 21st day of the 3rd month – represents the 3 copies of chromosome 21, which is unique to people with Down syndrome. This year marks the 12th anniversary of World Down Syndrome Day, which is officially recognized by the United Nations. Children are invited to come into school that day with the most colourful odd socks they can find.

Holdenby House

Holdenby House 4th February 2019

The children in Amber and Quartz class (Year 1) visited Holdenby House in Northampton where they continued their learning about some of the employment that Victorian children had to undertake.

The children were received by Mrs Bumbridge and Mrs Crumpet and soon put to their tasks.

This included working in the kitchen, bedroom, and boot room, where they baked bread, ground bread crumbs, chopped vegetables, made herb filled bags, dusted books, made beds, polished brass and saddles, beat the dust out of the bedroom rug and many other jobs.

This was followed by a tour of the house and insights into the amazing bells system, which runs through the house.

Next, the children 'met Lady Annaly' and entertained her with a rendition of God save the Queen. 

Finally two of the children were presented with a certificate charging them to return to the house at age 10, to work as Victorian servants for the Lord and Lady of the house.
