Raph came to talk to us about what it was like for him growing up in Totterdown.  He came to this school when he was a boy.  He had lots of stories to tell about his aunty, who has lots of memories of the area.  We were amazed when he told us how little houses used to cost!
Mrs Fleming told us about an elderly neighbour who used to live on Hawthorne Street.  Her father's family were the first people to move into her house when it was brand new in 1896.  Her father came to this school when it cost twopence ha'penny a week to attend.  He came to school early each day because it was his job to ring the bell (still on the roof of the KS1 wing) to call the children to school.
