Plague Symptoms Strike the Pre-Prep

Plague Symptoms Strike the Pre-Prep

Plague Symptoms hit the Pre-Prep!

Bulging Buboes hit the pre-prep today showing clear signs that the Bubonic Plague had arrived!!! Year 2 children experienced first-hand the revolting and terrifying symptoms, whilst learning about the local story of the plague of Eyam. With the clever, artistic work of Mrs W and Mrs A, a bit of pva glue, tissue, talc and paint, the once healthy skin of a number of  brave ‘victims’ was transformed into  realistic, disgusting and weeping buboes on some of the children’s arms. We advise a red cross on the front door, a pocketful of posies to ward off the germs and generally giving a wide berth to anyone displaying such growths on their arm!
