Community pride

PUPILS from Orchards Primary School are learning about what makes Wisbech such a special place through their participation in their whole school Wisbech Project.

Helen Williams, headteacher, who introduced the project last term said: “It is so important for our children to develop an understanding and knowledge of their own locality.

“Last term we focused on historical buildings in Wisbech and this term our theme is the river.” Pupils have been looking at the historical and geographical importance of the waterway system and investigating and recording different aspects of the river during visits to the Nene Waterfront.
