Today we had a special assembly to mark to 80th Anniversary of D-Day. The children discovered what D-Day was and why it was so important. They also found out about men from South Shields who played a role in D-Day. They heard stories from the book ‘Their Finest Hour’ by Terry Ford. Terry has been working with Oxford University and the South Shields Local History Group to collect stories of ‘South Shields Heroes from World War II’. The children enjoyed listening to some of these fantastic stories!
