Today year 6 had a trip into Leeds to go to the Marks and Spencer’s archive and learnt about the history of Marks and Spencer’s . My class learnt that it was started by a Polish and Jewish man and was later taken over by his son, Simon Marks. What started off as a small penny priced stall, blossomed into a worldwide company. I found out that Twiggy started modeling for them in the 1960’s and was only 16 years old . Next time you go into a Marks and Spencer’s think about how many years its been around and think about it still being a tiny penny priced shop!
