Mrs Passmore and Mrs Penrose-Smith have really enjoyed finding out about the families of the children in their class and the children really enjoyed sharing their family trees with each other.

Alexander discovered that some of his maternal family came from Armenia and that one of them was called Vazabed! Sohan’s family tree shared that he is the first member of his family to be born in England rather than India.

Mrs Passmore’s children had fascinating international connections with Burma, India, New Zealand, Sweden, Guyana and Australia. Paige’s family tree went back to 1910, Sophie’s 1907, Arun to 1887 and Marcus to 1836!
