WW1 History Week

The whole school took part in a history week to commemorate 100 years since the end of the First World War. During the week the children took part in a WW1 Workshop where they learnt about life as a soldier in the trenches. Each class made clay poppies and doves for a poppy memorial garden display. Other activities included visiting the war memorial in Eastcombe, a WW1 themed school day and a victory tea party. The week culminated in an exhibition of children’s work in the school hall and open classrooms to share their learning with friends and relatives. The whole week was extremely successful and a great experience for the children.
